6. Saving and Restoring Configuration
After the TPS has been properly configured, parameters can be downloaded and saved as an ASCII text
file. 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 TPS 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.
6.1. Sending Parameters to a File
1. Start your communications program and access the TPS command mode using the System Level
2. When the TPS command prompt appears, type /DL and press [Enter]. The TPS 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 (e.g. TPS.PAR).
3. When the communications program is ready to receive the file, return to the TPS command mode,
and press [Enter] to proceed.
4. The TPS will send a series of ASCII command lines which specify the currently selected TPS
6.2. Restoring Saved Parameters
This section describes the procedure for using ProComm to send saved parameters to the TPS.
1. Start your communications program and access the TPS command mode using the System Level
2. Configure your communications program to upload an ASCII text file.
3. Upload the file with the saved parameters. If necessary, key in the file name and directory path.
4. When the upload is complete, make certain to terminate the communications program's upload
The current On/Off status of each TPS plug will not be saved or restored. However, the
selected default On/Off setting for each plug will be saved and restored.
When the configuration file is sent to the TPS via telnet, the unit's IP Address, Subnet
Mask, and Gateway Address cannot be altered.
5. Type /SP and press [Enter], the TPS will display the TPS Status Screen with passwords revealed.
Check the Status Screen to make certain that saved parameters have been restored.
