Configuring Serial Port Parameters for CESoPSN Bundles (CTPView)
This topic describes how to configure port parameters for serial interfaces on CTP150 devices.
Before you begin:
Log in to the CTPView software at least at the Net_Admin level.
Connect the CTPView server to the CTP device for which you want to configure bundles.
To configure serial port parameters using CTPView:
- In the side pane, select Bundle > Configuration.
- Run your mouse over the Display and Select an Existing Bundle bar.
- In the table of bundles, select the bundle that you want to modify. To create a new CESoPSN bundle, run your mouse over the Open Add Bundles Display bar, select a serial port, and click CESoPSN.
- Under Port Options, configure the parameters described in Table 1.
- Click Click to Submit Bundle AND Port Changes.
Table 1: CESoPSN Bundle Serial Port Parameter Settings in CTPView
Specifies a description for the port.
Enter a description of up to 62 alphanumeric characters. Do not use the following characters:
( ; ' " ) ]
Specifies that the interface is connected to a data communication equipment (DCE) device or to a data terminal equipment (DTE) device.
Specifies the serial encoding method used on this bundle. CESoPSN bundles on serial interfaces only support NRZ encoding.
Select NRZ (nonreturn to zero line encoding).
Specifies the electrical standard used on the serial interface.
Specifies the speed of the port. In networks without bandwidth constraints, we recommend a multiple of 64.
Enter a number from 64.00 through 2048.00 kHz.
Specifies the clocking method.
You can specify the following clocking methods for NRZ with DCE mode specified:
Only High TT Checking
Specifies that the CTP device disqualifies transmit timing (TT) only when it is higher than the port speed.
When enabled, this setting keeps the port from going to the TtFail state when the incoming user clock fluctuates between 0 and the configured port rate. If the TT rate goes above the configured port rate, the CTP device sends the port to the TtFail state to protect the system from an overspeed TT, which would cause problems for the port, CTP device, or network.
Select ENABLED or DISABLED.
