Serial access

Connect a serial cable to the unit’s serial port and configure a terminal emulator such
as putty with the following settings: 115200,8,N,1

On Wanderbox devices the lower of the two USB ports acts as a console port. The console can be accessed by connecting the lower USB to a USB port on your PC/Laptop and then using that port to create a serial connection using putty.

Note: Older Com.X10 and Com.X5 units feature serial ports with RJ45 connections, while newer Com.X10 and Com.X20 units feature RS232 ports

The DHCP-assigned IP address can be obtained from the serial console using the
ifconfig command, or from the external DHCP server’s administration application.
