CMS Series Q & A

1. Can multiple WTI units be Daisy Chained together?
Yes. Use a NULL cable to connect the two units together. (Refer to WTI PN# NC9F9F NULL Cable). Make certain to change the LOG OFF CHARACTER for each unit in the daisy chain, so that no two units in the chain use the same Log Off Character.
2. Can I change the CMS unit's IP settings via Telnet connection?
Yes. Note however, that this function is only supported by CMS firmware version 4.0 and higher. If you do not have version 4.0, contact WTI Tech Support at 888-280-7227. To determine which firmware version is used by your CMS unit, type /checksum at the CMS> command prompt. Top of Page
3. When upgrading the CMS unit using HyperTerminal there is no status display. How do we know that the upgrade is taking place?
HyperTerminal does not supply a status screen. The only indication that a file transfer is taking place, via a serial connection, is to view the front panel of the CMS. The Port Activity LED for the port you are connected to will be ON while data is being transferred to the unit.
4. How do you send the STOP A command on a Sun System (BREAK)?
The STOP A command on the SUN keyboard is equivalent to a Break command. To send a break from a telnet session, first exit to the Telnet prompt by invoking the ^] command at the CMS> command prompt. When the Telnet prompt appears, type "Send Break" and press Enter. Top of Page
5. How many simultaneous TELNET sessions will the unit support?
For CMS units that include firmware version 4.0 or higher:
The CMS-16 allows sixteen connections to port 23 and one connection to port 2001.
The CMS-8 allows eight connections to port 23 and one connection to port 2001. Top of Page
