Comtrol(TM) RocketPort(R) Serial Hub Si Diagnostics
=======================================================================
USING THE DIAGNOSTICS

The diagnostic shipped with the RPSH-Si performs the following tests:
• Verifies the MAC address of the RPSH-Si.
• Initializes each channel on the board.
• Verifies that each port’s communications mode is functional,
by selecting the mode in the diagnostic set up screens.
• Tests the AIOPIC memory.
• Tests the functionality of each port’s data and modem signals.
• Tests the Ethernet loopback in the RPSH-Si.
• Verifies that all of the LEDs are working.
• Reports on the screen that the diagnostic did not find any errors
or provides you with information about what failures occurred at
which ports.

The Diagnostic switches Port 1 into diagnostic mode to communicate to a
COM port on a PC (COM 1 or 2). Use the following procedure to test the RPSH-Si:

1. Disconnect the ethernet cable from the RPSH-Si.

2. Turn the Power switch to the OFF position.

3. In native MS-DOS® environment, you can execute the sidiag.exe program located
on the diskette.

Note: The Diagnostic and IP Configurator Utility takes a few moments
to load.

4. At the first screen, press the B key start the diagnostic.

5. Connect a null-modem cable from a COM port on a PC (COM1 or COM2) to Port 1
on the RPSH-Si.

Note: If the RPSH-Si is not located near your server, you can use
another computer or laptop to run the Diagnostics and IP Configurator.

6. Press the 1 or 2 and Enter keys to represent which COM port on the PC to
which you are connected.

7. Press the 4 or 8 and Enter keys to represent the number of ports that the
RPSH-Si contains.

8. Optionally, test the ports that use RS-422 or RS-485 mode.
a. Select a port number (2 through 4 or 8) that you want to test for
RS-422 or RS-485 and press the Enter key.
b. Select the appropriate mode (it is not necessary to press the Enter
key).

Note: You must test RS-485 in pairs because it requires a loopback
cable.

9. Press the A and Enter keys after selecting the appropriate mode for each
port or to test all of the ports in RS-232.

Note: You can not actually test Port 1 in the same way that you can test
the other ports, but if the diagnostic is running, then RS-232 mode is
functioning properly.

10. Plug the loopback plug (RS-232 or RS-422) or the loopback cable (RS-485)
into Port 2.

Note: If you are testing RS-485, plug the other end of the loopback
cable into the port that you selected in Step 8.

11. Turn the RPSH-Si Power switch to the ON position and wait for the Port 1 LED
to start blinking.

12. Press any key after the Port 1 LED starts to blink.

Also discusses the Diagnostic/IP Configurator utility and hardware specifications. RocketPort Serial Hub Si
4 and 8-Port
Hardware Documentation

Product Overview
The RocketPort Serial Hub Si (RPSH-Si) is based on
the same technology as the popular RocketPort series.
The RocketPort Serial Hub Si is a serial
communications device that easily connects to a
10Base-T Ethernet hub or network interface card
(NIC).
The RocketPort Serial Hub Si uses a 20 MHz processor
specifically designed to process asynchronous serial
communications, thereby maximizing performance and
eliminating throughput bottlenecks.
The RocketPort Serial Hub Si uses Application Specific
Integrated Circuits (ASICs) technology. ASIC
technology increases reliability because it replaces
many hardware components, which in turn reduces the
number of parts that can fail.
RocketPort Serial Hub Si features include:
• Four or eight DB9 selectable asynchronous RS-232,
RS-422, or RS-485 serial ports.
• Configurable network protocol, allowing the
RocketPort Serial Hub Si to use IP or MAC (media
access control) addressing. See the Using the IP
Configurator Utility discussion for the advantages
and procedures of each addressing method.A power
supply that supports input voltages between 100
and 240 and 50 or 60 Hz operation.
• “Hot-swapping,” which allows you to replace an
existing and configured RocketPort Serial Hub Si
with an identical unit, without downing the server
or reconfiguring ports.
• Diagnostic LEDs and a utility that includes
diagnostics and an IP Configurator.
Some drivers feature:
• Multi-server port assignment, permitting the
sharing of this device with multiple servers. Each
individual server can be configured for MAC or IP
addressing.
• Port sharing among servers. The same port can be
used for multiple servers.

What This Document Contains
Use this document to:
• Connect the RocketPort Serial Hub Si to the
network.
• Verify that the RocketPort Serial Hub Si passes
the hardware diagnostics during the power up
phase.
• Add additional units to an existing RocketPort
Serial Hub Si environment.
• “Hot swap” RocketPort Serial Hub Si units that
have experienced a failure.
• Build cables or loopback plugs, including:
- An Ethernet crossover cable, if connecting the
RocketPort Serial Hub Si directly to a NIC card
(not included).
- Null-modem cable for the diagnostic or the
peripheral devices that you are connecting to
the RocketPort Serial Hub Si (one included).
- RS-232/422 loopback plug for use with the
diagnostic (one included).
- RS-485 loopback cable for use with the
diagnostic (not included).

NSLink (TM) driver for the Microsoft Windows(TM) 2000 and XP Operating Systems.

This driver is designed exclusively for the Windows 2000 and
Windows XP Operating Systems, and is not intended for use with
any other Microsoft operating system.

This readme.txt file provides basic instructions for installing the
NSLink software for the DeviceMaster RTS. For more detailed
instructions, see the installation documentation which came with
the device. Additional information is also available after the
installation is complete by selecting help in the setup program.
You can view the help information before installation by running
WINHELP sisetup.hlp. At the time of this release, the information
in the help file was modeled on the NSLink Windows 2000 installation.
The Help file information is generally applicable to the Windows XP
installation as well, but some details and screen shots may differ
slightly from those described for Windows 2000.

WindowsNT drivers in your system, then click on the "+" sign in

labeled "Multiport serial adapters". Then, double click on the
serial adapter device you just installed, this will bring up the
