This document explains how to start using IPLOG-GAMA.

TCP Connection

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

  • 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


  1. Connect the ethernet cable to an ethernet port on the unit
  2. Connect power (10-60VDC)
  3. Wait 15 seconds (TBC)
  4. 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



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)
