Once parameters have been saved to an ASCII ﬁle, the ﬁle can then be
uploaded to the NetLink II to reconﬁgure the unit without manually
deﬁning each parameter.
The ASCII ﬁle with the saved parameters can also be uploaded to other
NetLink II units. This allows rapid set-up when a number of units will be
conﬁgured with the same parameters.
1. Access command mode as described in Section 17.1.
a) If the password function is enabled, enter the valid Administrator
Level password. NetLink II must be operating in Administrator
Mode in order for this procedure to function.
b) Note that this procedure can be performed from anywhere in the
NetLink II menu system.
2. Use your communication program's (e.g., Tera Term's) upload function
to transfer the ﬁle that contains the saved parameters to the NetLink II
unit via modem or the Console Port.
a) Select ASCII File Format.
b) Specify the ﬁlename and directory location for the ﬁle with the
saved parameters. Note that it is very important to enter the
correct ﬁlename and location. Sending an incorrect ﬁle to the
NetLink II unit will cause unpredictable results.
3. If an Error message is received at any time during the parameter
upload, repeat steps 1 and 2 above to resend the entire ﬁle.
• If the ﬁle with the saved parameters is sent to NetLink II via
the Computer Port (from a local PC), changes will take effect
• If the parameter ﬁle is sent to NetLink II via the Modem Port,
Modem Communication Parameters will not take effect until
after you exit from Command Mode. The Port Status Screen will
not show the new Modem Port parameters until you have exited
and re-entered Command Mode.
