7. Saving and Restoring
Configuration Parameters
After the IPS has been properly configured, parameters can be downloaded
and saved as an ASCII text file on your local or remote PC. Later, if the
configuration is accidentally altered, the file with the saved parameters
can be uploaded to automatically reconfigure the unit without the need to
manually assign each parameter.
Saved parameters can also be uploaded to other IPS units. This allows
rapid set-up when several units will be configured with the same
The "Save Parameters" procedure can be performed from any terminal
emulation program (e.g. ProComm, Crosstalk, Hyperterminal, etc.), which
allows downloading of ASCII files.
Note: Although this function is only available via the Text
Interface, parameters that are defined via the Web Browser Interface
will also be sent to the ASCII file.

1. Start your communications program and access the IPS command
mode using the System Level Password.
2. When the IPS command prompt appears, type /DL and press [Enter].
The IPS will prompt you to prepare your communications program.

and specify a name for the file that will receive the saved parameters
(e.g. IPS.PAR).
3. When the communications program is ready to receive the file, return
to the IPS command mode, and press [Enter] to proceed.
4. The IPS will send a series of ASCII command lines which specify the
currently selected IPS parameters.
