Custom Factory Default Configuration

cnPilot R201, R200 and R190 supports custom factory default configuration. What this means is when router is factory reset, it will come up custom configuration/setting, instead of Cambium Networks factory default setting. This feature is available from release 4.5-R7 onwards.

For this you will need a tftp server and SNMP browser. Preferable tools for tftp server is tftpd64 and SNMP browser is iReasoning MIB Browser.

Custom configuration setting can be done from WAN or LAN side.  Below example, demonstrates factory default provisioning via LAN client.  For doing it from WAN side, Enable SNMP login from WAN.

  • Configure router with parameter which you want to have as factory reset configuration.Save and reboot router.
  • Download configuration file from router.Copy downloaded configuration file in TFTP server.
  • Open a MIB browser and load MIB file,” cambium-ata-mib”, download it from cambium support.
  • Go to “downloadConfig” in MIB browser and set "enable" as 1 to enable custom configuration file as factory default configuration.

  • Set “downloadUrl” with tftp custom configuration file location. 

  • Set “downloadButton” as 1 to download custom configuration file to router.

  • Set “ApplyButton” to 1, to apply this configuration file as default factory reset configuration.
