Connect to a PMP450i SM in the Lab via ethernet

I have seen this before but have never found the answer.

I have a 450i SM on the bench that I can only connect to (via the web interface) when it has a link up with an AP. If I have it stand alone on the bench with no AP I can not connect to it. This unit has been working onsite for years and I found the same problem onsite and at other sites I look after with the ePMP as well.

I also can not ping it.

I know the IP address and the VLAN etc. I can see it when running wireshark all ok.


Can you access it using the back door IP of

Hello Eric

Thanks for that. Yes could access the SM using the ‘Default Mode’. What a pain in the A!
