Chapter 4:
Configuring the
MasterSwitch
This chapter describes how to use SNMP, embedded Web control or the console program to configure the
MasterSwitch and its eight, individually-manageable power outlets.
Note: Most configuration functions can be performed using Web, SNMP or console control.
However, some functions are unique to a given control method(s). The descriptions
in this chapter identify which methods you can use (Web,
SNMP or console control)
for each described configuration function.
Functions
The MasterSwitch allows you to use SNMP, embedded Web or the terminal console program to configure
operational parameters or other values important to using the MasterSwitch:
n You can use Web, SNMP or console configuration commands to:
r Define a master power on delay value that affects all outlets equally.
r Define a reboot duration value that affects all outlets equally.
r Define a MasterSwitch device name.
r Define outlet device names.
r Define individual outlet power on values.
r Define SNMP access control for up to four network management stations (NMSs).
r Define up to four SNMP trap receivers.
Note: See Chapter 7: Using SNMP for more information on SNMP access control and
trap receivers.
r Reinitialize the MasterSwitch without affecting its outlet power.
n You can use embedded Web control, or the console program (but not SNMP), to enable or disable
BOOTP, or to define the MasterSwitch IP address, the default gateway IP address or the subnet mask
network configuration values needed by the MasterSwitch to communicate over the network.
Note: The console has an option (HTTP Net Config) in the Network submenu that
enables or disables the use of Web control to change the network configuration values.
See Chapter 2 for information on how to use the console program to define the needed
network values; See the help application provided with the embedded Web control for
information on how to use the Web control feature.
n You can use embedded Web control, only, to define URL link values for the MasterSwitch.
