Networking: TCP/IP

TCP/IP Settings Notebook

IP address, netmask

Default Route


FTP server setup

The network settings are handled by the embedded operating system (eCS), System Settings application. The system controller is pre-configured to use DHCP to automatically assign appropriate network settings. However, if the system controller needs to use a static IP address, the following instructions will be helpful. The network must be properly configured for Guru to operate. If your network has a dedicated Guru Server, you can use the Guru Address Book to configure the connection to that server. If not, you can access the RI's main Guru Server via the internet to simplify software updates and support requests. The network administrator should review the Guru Network Preparation Guidelines - connecting to guru.roos.com document.

NOTE : Please contact RI Support for assistant with setting up the TCP/IP networking. First make sure you have access to the following information for your network environment; IP address, TCP/IP Netmask, Default Route, and DNS Server or static host names.

FTP Capability
    • Use the FTP applications provided by eCS (GUI or CLI) to FTP out from the system
    • FTP Daemon must be set to Autostart to accept FTP connections
    • TCP/IP Security must be set for at least 1 user
    • User must have a Password (min 5 characters)
    • Available drives or files for FTP need to be set
      (use Negative logic to share all files and drives)
    • Must set FTP enabled

BINARY - Always transfer files in binary mode. ASCII mode will corrupt .zip files because of the line feed conversion (ln -> ln+rf). To put the standard FTP client into binary mode enter the command "binary" before starting the file transfer.

This FTP capability is primarily for administrative activities. The preferred way to transfer test data is with the Guru Agent that is explained in a later lesson.
