7. Saving and Restoring
After the NBB 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 NBB units. This allows rapid
set-up when several units will be conﬁgured with the same parameters.
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 available only via the Text
Interface, parameters that have been 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 NBB command
mode using the System Level Password.
2. When the NBB command prompt appears, type /DL and press [Enter].
The NBB 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 NBB command mode, and press [Enter] to proceed.
4. The NBB will send a series of ASCII command lines which specify the
currently selected NBB parameters.
