Through this article we aim to provide the procedure to reset a cnReach to factory defaults.
The following equipment is required to reset a cnReach to factory defaults and verify the IP address:
• Serial to USB adaptor
• 2x Standard CAT5/6 Ethernet cable (one for serial and one for ethernet)
• cnReach N500 DB-9 to RJ-45 adapter (NB-N500005A-US)
• Serial terminal client (Putty, HyperTerminal, SecureCRT etc)
• Standard CAT5/6 Ethernet cable
Configure the serial client as follows:
• Speed: 115200
• Date Bits: 8
• Stop Bits: 1
On power up, the device will display a 3 second countdown before booting.
Press “CTRL + C” to break out of the boot sequence and enter the Boot Menu
Press “2” and “Enter” to reset device to factory defaults
Type “reboot” and “Enter” to reboot the device
Once the device has rebooted, log into the device:
Type “show ifconfig” to display the current interface configuration. vlan1 will have a default IP Address of 192.168.0.3 after the factory default.
Configure the ethernet on the PC to a 192.168.0.x/24 address (i.e: 192.168.0.100)
Connect to the the device’s UI using its defualt IP address @ http://192.168.0.3
VLAN1 is the default VLAN that the 192.168.0.3/24 IP is bound to.
