By default, your Tripp Lite by Eaton device has the static IP address 192.168.0.1 and runs a DHCP client. You can reconfigure the IP address using the Management console, or it can be assigned using ARP ping. Or, you can reconfigure the IP from the command line.
Use SSH to connect to the device at its current IP address (ssh username:email@example.com) to access a command line interface. You can also use Telnet if it is enabled (Telnet is disabled by default).
At the command line, you can reset the console server IP address using the
config command. For example, to set the IP Address to 192.168.1.100, Network Mask to 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway to 192.168.1.1, and Primary DNS to 192.168.1.254, you would issue the following commands:
# config -s config.interfaces.wan.mode=static
# config -s config.interfaces.wan.address=192.168.1.100
# config -s config.interfaces.wan.netmask=255.255.255.0
# config -s config.interfaces.wan.gateway=192.168.1.1
# config -s config.interfaces.wan.media=Auto
# config -s config.interfaces.wan.dns1=192.168.1.254
Then, synchronize the device with this new configuration:
# config -r ipconfig
You can now use the
pmshell command to connect to a local serial port. You can also use Telnet or SSH to reach a specific TCP port to connect directly to a serial console.
