14. Saving NetLink II Parameters
This chapter discusses NetLink II functions related to saving and restoring
user-defined parameters. Two different functions are discussed; saving
parameters to flash memory, and saving parameters to an ASCII file at your
polling device.
14.1. Saving Parameters to Flash Memory
During configuration, newly defined parameters are stored in NetLink II's
temporary memory. Although these new parameters will determine the
unit's current setup, parameters stored in temporary memory may be lost if
there is a power interruption. To ensure that setup parameters are retained,
it is recommended to save parameters to flash memory.
When parameters are changed, the unit will display a prompt to notify the
user that newly defined parameters have not been saved. Main Menu item 7
is used to save parameters from temporary memory to flash memory.
If the user exits from command mode without first saving new parameters,
NetLink II will display a menu that offers the following options:
Save and Exit: NetLink II will save all configuration parameters to
flash memory and then exit.
Exit Without Saving: NetLink II will exit from command mode
without saving parameters to flash memory. Newly defined parameters
will still be stored in temporary memory, but may be lost if there is an
interruption of power to the unit.
Restore Previous Parameters: Newly defined parameters will be
discarded and NetLink II will be reconfigured with the parameters that
were previously saved to flash memory.
Note: Command ^B74 can also be used to save user-defined
NetLink II parameters to flash memory. As described in Section 16,
Command ^B74 offers the option save parameters to flash memory
or restore parameters from flash memory.
14.2. Saving and Restoring Parameters from
an ASCII File
After NetLink II has been configured, parameters can be saved to an ASCII
text file using the File Mode in ProComm or another communications
program. Later, if the configuration is altered or deleted, saved parameters
can be uploaded to quickly reconfigure the unit without the need to
manually enter each parameter.
