Schneider Automation BootP Lite Ethernet IP Address Download Utility For Schneider Automation Ethernet Products

BootP Lite Software


BootP Lite is a Windows-based software utility for downloading an Ethernet IP address, default router and subnet mask to Schneider Ethernet Products. When used with the Momentum ENT Ethernet Communication Adapter, the utility permanently changes the IP address in the adapters flash memory. When used with a Momentum M1 Ethernet Processor or Quantum NOE Communications module the utility changes the IP address, default router and subnet mask of the processor. Optionally, it may cause the processor to enter Stopped mode on completion of power up. This is useful when inappropriate outbound network traffic might result if the processor immediately transitioned into Run mode after power up.

Installation:
Copy Bootplt.exe to the directory from which you wish to execute the program. Your computer must be running Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT or Windows 3.11 For Work Groups. Your computer must also provide a network connection, via an Ethernet Communications card, to the Ethernet network on which the target device ( processor or communication adapter ) is located.

Operation:
The utility is invoked from the DOS command line or the MS-DOS Prompt under Windows 95 or the Command Prompt under Windows NT.

General Instructions:
You will want to be located near the target device ( processor or communication adapter ) to power cycle it and to verify correct operation. 1) Bootp Lite is invoked from the command line (see detail below). 2) Power cycle the target when prompted. 3) Diagnostic or error messages will be displayed as the process proceeds. 4) Check the LED blink pattern of the target hardware to confirm the success of the operation. Refer to Responses to BootP Lite Commands, below.

BootP Lite Commands:

From the DOS prompt, type the command bootplt <enter>, and the display above will come up on the screen. This display illustrates the basic function of the Bootplt program. The MAC address for the target device is the first piece of information that is required. It is a unique address for the target device that is set at the factory. On the Momentum M1E processors and Ethernet communication adapters the MAC address is on a label that is located on the side of the plastic enclosure. The desired IP address for the target device is also required. This address is user selectable, but should be in the same domain as the IP address of the PC that is being used as the Bootp server. The IP address for the router and the IP mask are optional information that is not required if the PC is local to the target device.

Example
The following is a sample of the steps required to configure an IP Address for a Momentum ENT Ethernet communication adapter.

1. From the DOS prompt, as shown above, enter the command < bootplt>, followed by a space, than the MAC Address of the target device ( communication adapter ), followed by a space, and than the IP Address that is being assigned to the target device. Then press the <enter> key.

2. The message as shown above, will appear below the DOS command that you entered, and will first repeat the MAC address and IP address information that was entered. The message on the next line ask if you have checked the network to insure that there are no other devices connected that already have the same IP address that is to be written to the selected target device. Using the PING command with the IP address, the computer will send out a message over the network with the selected IP address and wait for a response. If there is no device on the network

with this IP address, the PING message will receive 4 Request Timed Out responses. Enter Y and the Bootp function will continue. If there is a device on the network that already has the IP addressed assigned to it, the response will be 4 messages Reply from 192.168.1.35: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128 . At this point you should select another IP address to write to the target device.

3. Once Y is entered, the Bootp program will begin the broadcast sequence, where it will write the selected IP address to the target device ( Momentum communication adapter in this example), which has been identified by its MAC address. A total of 10 messages are written to the target device,. During this write operation, the power to the target device must by cycled ( turned off and on again ).

4. When the Bootp program has finished sending the 10 messages to the target device, display above indicates the Bootp broadcast sequence is complete. The program identifies the target device ( ENT communication adapter ) that has been given the new IP address. The user is asked if they want to now save the new IP address in the Flash memory of the communication adapter. Note: It is highly recommended that new IP address is saved to the non-volatile Flash memory on the ENT communication adapter. In the event of a power failure, the IP address will be saved and when power is returned, the communication adapter will start up with it IP address and resume communications.

5. Enter Y to confirm that the IP address is to be saved in communication adapters Flash memory and when the operation is complete the message above is displayed. At this point the Bootp operation is complete, the communication adapter has an IP address and can be communicated to by other Ethernet devices on the network.

Failed Bootp Operation

Under certain situations, such as the target device may already have an IP address, the Bootp program may fail in writing an IP address to the target device. In this situation the message below will appear. If the target device does have an existing IP address but because of new system requirements must be changed, Press the F3 key to re-initiate the Bootp operation which should than write the new IP address to the target device.

Responses to BootP Lite commands: When used with the ENT communications adapter:
1) The new IP address is permanently stored in the adapters flash memory . 2) To confirm that the download operation has been successful, check the following LEDs: Run: On

When used with the M1 Ethernet Processor in passive bootp mode:


If the target has been configured for passive bootp mode via the Use IP option in the Concept programming panel, on power up: 1) The processor will enter Stopped mode after power up is completed; 2) The new IP address may be used to communicate with the controller; 3) To confirm that the download operation has been successful, check the following LEDs: LAN Status: On Run: Off The downloaded IP address may be used to communicate with the processor. This new IP address, default router and subnet mask are volatile. You may use a programming panel (such as Concept V2.2 or greater) to permanently store this information to the processors Flash memory.

When used with the M1 Ethernet Processor in active bootp mode:


If the target has been configured for active bootp mode via the Use BootP option in the Concept programming panel, on power up: 1. The processor will transmit BootP requests until a BootP response is received. 2. The processor will Start on completion of power up, if it has been programmed to do so. 3. To confirm that the download operation has been successful, check the following LEDs: LAN Status: On Run: On if the processor has been programmed to start, otherwise Off. The downloaded IP address may be used to communicate with the processor. This new IP address, default router and subnet mask are volatile. You may use a programming panel (such as Concept V2.2 or greater) to permanently store this information to the processors Flash memory.

When used with an un-configured M1 Ethernet Processor:


If the target is un-configured, ie, contains no program, or contains no configuration extensions (this is the default as shipped from the factory), on power up:

1. The processor will enter Stopped mode after power up is completed; 2. The new IP address may be used to communicate with the controller; 3. To confirm that the download operation has been successful, check the following LEDs: LAN Status: On Run: Off The downloaded IP address may be used to communicate with the processor. This new IP address, default router and subnet mask are volatile. You may use a programming panel (such as Concept V2.2 or greater) to permanently store this information. When used with a Quantum NOE Communication module: 1. The downloaded IP address may be used to communicate with the NOE. 2. To confirm that the download operation has been successful, check the following LEDs: Run: On The new IP address, default router, and subnet mask are volatile and may be lost during a power OFF state. You may use a programming panel (such as Concept V2.2 or greater) to permanently store this information.

System Requirements:
BootP Lite requires an IBM or compatible personal computer with an Ethernet network communications card, running a DOS session under one of the following operating systems: Windows 3.11 Windows for Workgroups Windows 95; Windows 98; Windows NT.

Caution: Be sure to verify the MAC address of the target device before invoking this program. If you do not enter the
correct parameters of the target controller, it will come up running in its old configuration An incorrect MAC address may also cause an unwanted change to another device and cause unexpected results.

Note: Where possible, we recommend that you install and operate BootP Lite and the target device on an isolated

network, and verify that the address of the target device has been correctly modified. This will prevent any unexpected results from affecting your network. In the system configuration below, the computer that is performing the Bootp operation and the 4 Momentum I/O modules with the ENT Ethernet communication adapters are in the same domain. In simple terms, the computer and all of the I/O modules should have the same series of IP addresses as shown in the issiatration below.
