MIRAN File Transfer
There are several ways to transfer files to or from a MIRAN card:
|1. Via PCMCIA slot (drive A:)||A 64Mb PCMCIA CF memory card/adapter|
|2. Via File Transfer Protocol||LAN connection, IP address, FTP client|
|3. Mount the CF on PC/laptop||Remove onboard flash drive, USB CF reader|
If the MIRAN card is connected to a LAN (ELAN), network file transfer (FTP) is a good non-service impacting option! This method can be used to make backup copies of the keycode, music/announcement, and calendar files. A network connection also allows remote administration via a web browser, and/or TELNET. A NTVQ0120E5 50 pin i/o adapter is required to connect MIRAN to a network.
- Log on from a serial TTY (9600-8n1). Shift-tilde (~) refreshes the screen.
- Select "2", Pack Administration, then "6", Ethernet Configuration.
- Enter an IP address, subnet, and gateway, for "IP Method", enter "static".
- Arrow down to "Set" and hit enter to save changes. Exit and log out.
- Reset the card for the changes to take effect.
MIRAN has a limited FTP command set, the following commands are supported:
! (exclamation) is a local shell, prefix a command to execute it locally, eg:
Use ASCII mode to transfer text files (keycode.dat), and Binary mode to transfer all other files.
Change to the MIRAN PCMCIA drive with
cd /A:, or internal flash drive (default) with
cd /C: - drive letter is uppercase.
The plain-text file
C:KEYCODE.DAT must be present (and validate) for MIRAN to function after a reboot.
To restore the default accounts (and reset passwords), delete the file
C:_USERS.DAT (mount CF if no access).
Default accounts - User: user/user0000 | Administrator: admin/admin000 | Distributor: distrib/distrib0
MIRAN does not support PWD causing some FTP programs to quit. Therefore, simply use the command line.
Open a FTP session from the command line (Windows) or Terminal (Mac) with
Transfer files with
put <filename> or
get <filename>, being careful to set the correct mode first (eg,
Close the session with
