This appendix briefly describes a configuration using a Livingston Portmaster PM2E.
It is assumed that the target is connected to a port (port S7, for example) of the Portmaster. The serial line must have an inverter.
To configure the Portmaster, ask a system administrator to open a window on the Portmaster, and to set the following values:
mode: standard port type: dialnet dialnet type: hardwired protocol: either 'PPP' or 'SLIP' MTU: 1006 baud rate: 9600 9600 9600 modem control: off flow control: RTS/CTS IP destination: either target_PPP or target_SLIP netmask: 255.255.255.0 routing: none compression: disabled
Press the apply button, and the remote reset button. If there are any problems, press the remote reset button again before starting PPP or SLIP.
