Terminal Server Connect/Disconnect InstructionsTo determine port_id, add 10000 to the port number.
- To connect on VMS:
- To connect on a PC, use a command prompt screen:
telnet <terminal_server_node_name> <port_id>
- To connect on Unix, either use an alias defined in /afs/slac/g/spear/epics/epicsAliases or:
telnet <terminal_server_node_name> <port_id>
- Enter the password. After the password is accepted, push enter a second time to see the prompt.
- To disconnect on VMS:
Ctrl-^ c (control-shift-6 c)
- To disconnect on Unix or a PC:
Ctrl-] and type quit at the telnet prompt
Terminal Server Setup InstructionsIf you need to configure a new terminal server:
- Choose a node name and email m$network@ssrl to get an IP address and have it entered into DNS. If it is production, the IP address must be chosen from the 466-TS group and must be added to the SPEAR_TERMINALSERVERs group in the SSRL firewall.
- Connect it to an ethernet port configured for 10Mb, half duplex (older servers) or 100Mb, full duplex (newer servers). Since all terminal server clients are currently set up as 100/full, make sure the device will not auto-negotiate to 1000/full (ie, use fixed negotiation if necessary).
- On a machine on the same subnet:
- arp -s IP_address MAC_address
- telnet IP_address
- password> (hit return)
- local> set term vt100
- Connections menu appear (hit return)
- Select Admin mode field
- Select Password field and enter default password "iolan"
- Select the server field and enter the IP address and subnet mask and set the ethernet interface to TWISTED
- Set host table and gateway - details needed here
- Hit return and select Save and Exit
- Select reboot
- Power cycle the terminal server to see that it remembers its IP address
- Telnet in again and configure the rest of the server parameters
- For newer terminal servers, configure advanced features (like RS485 settings) using the web interface.
Terminal Server Port Setup InstructionsIf you need to configure a new terminal server port:
- Telnet in and get to the Admin mode and password as above (or use the web interface if available)
- Select port from the Administrator menu and enter the port number
- Enter the port characteristics navigating with the arrow keys
- "Reverse telnet" connections (ie, IOC CPUs and the microTCA MCH and CPU) require Remote Access and Telnet Mode
- BPLD, hall probe, radiation monitor, and SR630 connections require Remote Access and Raw Mode
- MicroTCA crate MCH module requires 19200 baud, no parity, 8 bit, 1 stop bit.
- MicroTCA and EMCOR CPU modules require 115200 baud, no parity, 8 bit, 1 stop bit.
- Synergy and MVMEx100 require 9600 baud, no parity, 8 bit, 1 stop bit.
- Save and Exit
- Add a line for the port to $IOC/screeniocs following instructions at the top of the file.
- Optional - add an alias for the node using the port to $EPICS/epicsAliases.
Terminal Server Security Enable InstructionsTo enable security on a serial port accessed through reverse telnet:
- Set a terminal server login password from the Administrator | change menu
- Set Secure to Yes from the Administrator | port | Options menu
- Set Authentication to Local from the Administrator | port | Access menu
- Kill the port from the Administrator menu for the settings to take effect

* It is extremely important that pin 4 on the neutron monitor is NOT connected.

Teslameter Jumper, Dip Switch, and Rotary Switch Settings:
Refer to the user manual, and use defaults for option and handshake jumper pins. If the teslameter is connected directly to the terminal server or PC serial port, set T/M pins to terminal mode. If teslameter is connected to the DPM display, set them to modem mode (default). Set rotary switch to "E" (9600 baud). Set S1-1 to S1-5 to the device address. To choose 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit, set S1-6 to On, S1-7 to Off, and S1-8 to On. Set S2-1 to Off (on-demand transmission), S2-2 to S2-4 to On (select terminator = carriage return, double terminator = enabled, echo = On), and S2-5 to S2-8 to Off (units = tesla, no units symbol, no filtering, defaults = no action).
DPM Teslameter Display InstructionsChange the address of the DPM with the two cryptically labeled front panel switches, ROLL (R) and SELECT (S). When the address is changed, the display shows the corresponding teslameter output and ignores all other addresses. With soft-ioctelsa running, the field of the magnet corresponding to the address (see table above) updates at 1Hz and its temperature at 0.1Hz.
To change the address:
Note - to control the teslameters from the DPM, first stop soft-ioctelsa. Then switch to Master mode using the same switches.
- Hold R down and press and release S and then release R
- Do this again
- Press S to increment the address, maximum 31
- Press R to decrement the address, minimum 0
- Do step 1 again to return to field display
