Required PDU configuration
Before connecting to the WNC, the IP Dongle and all PDUs must be properly configured:
Set PDU "level" for each PDU in the daisy-chain
Use the graphical display and the adjacent buttons to configure the PDU connected to the IP Dongle for "Level: 1", configure the next PDU for "Level: 2", etc.
Enable SNMP interface for the IP Dongle
Use the web interface to enable SNMP support, so that the WNC is able to query the device readings
Collect a laptop computer with ethernet port, and an ethernet cable
Configure the laptop computer's ethernet port for these settings: IP 192.168.0.2 / Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 / Gateway 192.168.0.254
Connect the ethernet cable between the laptop's ethernet port and the ethernet port on the IP Dongle
Open an internet browser on the laptop and navigate to 192.168.0.1
The default login is 00000000 (eight zeros) for the username and password
Select the SNMP option in the left navigation pane
Click Enable, then Apply
Refer to the Austin Hughes user manuals for the PDU and/or IP Dongle (links above) for more information.
