Getting Started

Lucent offers three tools to configure the PortMaster® Office Router:

Setup Wizard Quick Start Instructions

To get started using the Wizard, complete the following steps:

1. To connect to the Ethernet using the 10BaseT port, set DIP switch 3 on the rear panel to the "up" position. To connect to the Ethernet using the AUI port, set DIP switch 3 to the "down" position.

2. Connect the power cable, 10BaseT Ethernet cable, and RJ-45 ISDN cable into the rear panel jacks of the Office Router. Connect the 10BaseT cable to your network cabling outlet, and the RJ-45 ISDN cable to your ISDN phone jack.

3. Power on the PortMaster Office Router. Confirm that the "System" and "Link" lights on the front panel of the Office Router are solid green. If you are using Office Router model OR-U, ensure that the "NT1" light is blinking slowly.

4. Install the Office Router Setup Wizard using the instructions on the PortMaster Software CD.

Once you've completed initial setup using the Office Router Setup Wizard, you may complete configuration using PMconsole or the command line interface. For information about PMconsole, see the PMconsole for Windows Administrator's Guide. For information about the command line interface, refer to the Command Line Administrator's Guide or to the PortMaster Configuration Guide.
