LAN CONNECTIVITY


  1. A Static IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway must be provided by the LAN Administrator.

  2. Using the same connector that is used for SPM, connect to the MERLIN Messaging RS232 port (or you may access the RMD), using Hyperterminal to change the settings in the Merlin Messaging. Go to Page 3

  3. Connect directly from the LAN port via a 10 Base-T cable (D8W cord o.k.) to the customers Hub or Router.

  4. Load the System Administration software and connect. Go to page 5



PC DIRECT CONNECTIVITY





  1. Merlin Messaging has a default Static IP address of 10.0.0.42 and a Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0.

  2. This needs to be verified in the Merlin Messaging through either the RMD or RS232 port using Hyperterminal. Go to page 4

  3. Connect using the provided 10 Base –T crossover Cable with a D8W cord to the PC’s RJ 45 connector on their NIC card.

  4. Set the PC’s TCP/IP Protocol to the specified IP address = 10.0.0.43 and Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0. Go to page’s 5 & 6

  5. Load the System Administration software and connect. Go to page 5


Setting the IP Address in the Merlin Messaging Unit When Connected to a Customers LAN

1 Perform one of the following steps:

• Double-click on the MERLIN Messaging Administration desktop short cut.

• Select the MERLIN Messaging Administration short cut from the Start menu.

From the Start menu, select Programs>MERLIN Messaging>System Administration. (This is the default

location.)

The MERLIN Messaging Administration window appears, displaying the MERLIN Messaging Login dialog box.

5 Click the OK button.

Once you log in successfully, you can start administering the MERLIN Messaging system. The MERLIN Messaging Administration windows display the current MERLIN Messaging settings.



Changing the PC IP Address


If you want to keep the default IP address for the MERLIN Messaging module (10.0.0.42), you must change the IP address for the PC to an address that is in the same IP domain as the MERLIN Messaging module (for example, 10.0.0.43).

To connect the PC directly to the MERLIN Messaging system and change the IP address of the PC running MERLIN Messaging Administration:



1 Change the IP address for the PC running MERLIN Messaging Administration. The IP addresses of the MERLIN Messaging module and the PC must be in the same IP domain. The default IP address for the MERLIN Messaging module is 10.0.0.42. You must change the IP address for the PC to an address that is in the same IP domain as the MERLIN Messaging module (for example, 10.0.0.43). Refer to Windows help for instructions on how to change the IP address for the PC or Instructions on Page 6

2 Connect one end of the 10 Base-T crossover cable to the network interface card on the PC running MERLIN Messaging Administration.

3 Connect the other end of the 10 Base-T crossover cable to the RJ-45 connector on the MERLIN Messaging module.
