5. Configuration
5.1. Communicating with the RSM Unit
In order to configure the RSM, you must first connect to the unit, and access
command mode. Note that, the RSM offers two separate configuration
interfaces; the Web Browser Interface and the Text Interface.
In addition, the RSM also offers three different methods for accessing
command mode; via network, via modem, or via local console. The Web
Browser interface is only available via network, and the Text Interface is
available via network (SSH or Telnet), modem or local PC.
5.1.1. The Text Interface
The Text Interface consists of a series of simple ASCII text menus, which
allow you to set options and define parameters by entering the number for
the desired option using your keyboard, and then typing in the value for that
Since the Web Browser Interface and Telnet accessibility are both disabled in
the default state, you will need to use the Text Interface to contact the unit via
Local PC or SSH connection when setting up the unit for the first time. After
you have accessed command mode using the Text Interface, you can then
enable Web Access and Telnet Access in order to allow future communication
with the unit via Web Browser or Telnet. You will not be able to contact the
unit via Web Browser or Telnet until you have specifically enabled those
Once Telnet Access is enabled, you will then be able to use the Text Interface
to communicate with the RSM via local PC, Telnet or SSH connection. You
can also use the text interface to access command mode via the RSM's internal
modem, or via an external modem installed at one of the RSM's RS232 serial
