7. Saving and Restoring
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.
7.1. Sending Parameters to a 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.
Set up your communications program to receive an ASCII download,
and specify a name for the ﬁle that will receive the saved parameters
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.
