Set/display IP address
Although normally done from within the the Manager program, you can also display or change the IP adresss of either LAN port via the RS232 (DTE) Maintenance port on the back of the IP Office. They may be instances where this is useful.
DTE Port Settings:
- Access to the DTE port requires a (straight) serial cable between your PC/Laptop and the IP Office.
- Configure PuTTY, HyperTerminal, etc, for serial as follows: 38,400 - 8 - N - 1 - None - VT100
Enter the following commands (in bold) when the IPOffice is up and running:

Check LAN port status with the following command:
Wed 26/2/2014 10:33:23, Hello>lanstatus LAN1 is connected (negotiated) at 100Mb full duplex LAN2 is not connected
You can also discover the IP addresses with the
system command, they're displayed in Hexadecimal.
Hex IP-address converter:

Enter the HEX values into the Hex IP-address converter above to find the dotted decimal values.
In this example, Ipaddr (LAN) is 192.168.42.1, Ipaddr2 (WAN) is 188.8.131.52, and the subnet-mask is 255.255.255.0
