This document explains how to start using IPLOG-GAMA.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
During the system booting or ethernet cable connections, IPLOG sends a DHCP request to the server, if the DHCP server has dynamically assigned an IP address and other network configuration parameters then IPLOG is available on the TCP parameters of your network.
Static IP address
In the event that DHCP is not available the unit interface is set to the TCP parameters of the case (IP address 10.x.x.x, mask 255.0.0.0).
- DHCP and Static IP address services are available simultaneously.
root@buildroot:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp pre-up /etc/network/nfs_check wait-delay 15 auto eth0:0 iface eth0:0 inet static address 10.68.0.6 broadcast 10.255.255.255 netmask 255.0.0.0
- Connect the ethernet cable to an ethernet port on the unit
- Connect power (10-60VDC)
- Wait 15 seconds (TBC)
- Set your computer to the same IP range as IPLOG (assigned by DHCP server or please check the static address on the case of the IPLOG). For communication via static IP address, for example, set your computer interface to 10.0.0.10/255.0.0.0
Secure Shell (SSH) is a cryptographic network protocol for operating network services securely over an unsecured network
- Download programs supported by SSH, for example, PuTTY
- Run PuTTY and enter username "root" ( a password is not needed )
- Configure LAN interfaces (IP, DNS...) and other IOs (for example ranges at alarm loops, output ranges at analogue outputs 0-10V )
- Monitoring of LAN interfaces and other IOs
- Writing of Scripts
- Downloads and installs Linux packages (thanks to Linux, we have the first working application to send emails via Gmail)
