will need the latest version of Lantronix® DeviceInstaller™ utility. (See “Using DeviceInstaller”
on page 16.)
Command Mode: There are a few methods for accessing Command Mode (CLI): making a
Telnet connection or via the serial port (when configured accordingly). (See the XPort Pro Lx6
Embedded Device Server Command Reference Guide for instructions and available
commands.)
2: Introduction
XPort® Pro Lx6 Embedded Device Server User Guide 14
XML: The XPort Pro Lx6 supports XML-based configuration and setup records that make
device configuration transparent to users and administrators. XML is easily editable with a
standard text or XML editor. (See the XPort Pro Lx6 Embedded Device Server Command
Reference Guide for instructions and commands.)
Addresses and Port Numbers
Hardware Address
The hardware address is also referred to as the Ethernet address, physical address, or MAC
address. Sample hardware address:
00-80-A3-14-1B-18
00:80:A3:14:1B:18
IP Address
Every device connected to an IP network must have a unique IPv4 or IPv6 address. This address
references the specific unit.
Port Numbers
Every TCP connection and every UDP datagram is defined by a destination and source IP
address, and a destination and source port number. For example, a Telnet server commonly uses
TCP port number 23.
The following is a list of the default server port numbers running on the XPort Pro Lx6:
TCP Port 23: Telnet Server (Command Mode configuration)
TCP Port 80: HTTP (Web Manager configuration)
TCP Port 21: FTP
TCP/UDP Port 10001: Tunnel 1 (see note below)
Note: Additional TCP/UDP ports and tunnels will be available, depending on the product
type. The default numbering of each additional TCP/UDP port and corresponding tunnel
will increase sequentially (i.e., TCP/UDP Port 1000X: Tunnel X).
Product Information Label
The product information label on the unit contains the
following information about the specific unit:
Bar code
Product Revision
Part Number
Hardware Address (MAC Address)
Manufacturing Date Code
Note: The hardware address on the
label is the address for the Ethernet
(eth0) interface. For example, if the
product label hardware address is 00-80-
A3-14-1B-18, then the Ethernet address
is 00-80-A3-14-1B-18.

The Network Settings show the status of the Ethernet interface/link and let you configure the
settings on the device. Interface settings are related to the configuration of the IP and related
protocols. Link settings are related to the physical link connection, which carries the IP traffic.
Notes:
Some settings require a reboot to take effect. These settings are noted below.
Wait a minimum of 25-30 seconds after rebooting the unit before attempting to make
any subsequent connections.
The blue text in the XML command strings of this chapter are to be replaced with a

Description
BOOTP Client Select to turn On or Off. At boot up, after the physical link is up, the XPort Pro Lx6
will attempt to obtain IPv4 settings from a BOOTP server.
Note: Overrides the configured IPv4 address/mask, gateway, hostname, and
domain. When DHCP is Enabled, the system automatically uses DHCP,
regardless of whether BOOTP is Enabled. Changing this value requires you to
reboot the device.
DHCP Client Select to turn On or Off. At boot up, after the physical link is up, the XPort Pro Lx6
will attempt to obtain IPv4 settings from a DHCP server and will periodically renew
these settings with the server.
Note: Overrides BOOTP, the configured IPv4 address/mask, gateway, hostname,
and domain. Changing this value requires you to reboot the device.
Note: Within Web Manager, click Renew to renew the DHCP lease.
IP Address Enter the static IPv4 address to use for the interface. You may enter it alone or in
CIDR format.
Note: This setting will be used if Static IP is active (both DHCP and BOOTP are
Disabled). Changing this value requires you to reboot the device. When DHCP or
BOOTP is enabled, the XPort Pro Lx6 tries to obtain an IPv4 address from a DHCP
or BOOTP server. If it cannot, the XPort Pro Lx6 generates and uses an Auto IP
address in the range of 169.254.xxx.xxx, with a network mask of 255.255.0.0.
Default Gateway Enter the IPv4 address of the router for this network.
Note: This setting will be used if Static IP is active (both DHCP and BOOTP are

8: Configurable Pin Manager
The Configurable Pin Manager is responsible for assignment and control of the configurable pins
(CPs) available on the XPort Pro Lx6 embedded device service. There are three configurable pins
on the XPort Pro Lx6.
You must configure the CPs by making them part of a group. A CP Group may consist of one or
more CPs. This increases flexibility when incorporating the XPort Pro Lx6 into another system.
Note: The blue text in the XML command strings of this chapter are to be replaced with
a user-specified name.
CPM: Configurable Pins
Each CP is associated with an external hardware pin. CPs can trigger an outside event, like
sending an email message or starting Command Mode on a serial Line.
The Current Configuration table shows the current settings for each CP.
Table 8-1 Current Configurable Pins
Table 8-2 CP Status
CP Ref Configured as Value Groups Active in group
CP1 Pin 14 Input 1 2 <available>
CP2 Pin 16 Input 1 0 <available>

CPM – CPs Status Description
Name Shows the CP number.
State Shows the current enable state of the CP.
Type Shows the CP hardware pin type. Can be updated. Choices are:
Input
Output
When a CP is configured as output, it can be toggled by setting the value.
Whatever value is given, the first bit 0 is used as the setting. 1 means asserted
and 0 means de-asserted. Additionally, the CP logic can be inverted so that
assertion is low.
Value Shows the last bit in the CP current value.
Bit Visual display of the bitwise 32 bit placeholders for a CP.
Level A “+” symbol indicates the CP is asserted (the voltage is high). A “-“indicates the
CP voltage is low.
I/O Indicates the current status of the pin:
I = input
O = output
<blank> = unassigned
Logic An “I” indicates the CP is inverted (active low).
8: Configurable Pin Manager
XPort® Pro Lx6 Embedded Device Server User Guide 41
Notes:
To modify a CP, all groups in which it is a member must be disabled.
The changes to a CP configuration are not saved in FLASH. Instead, these CP
settings are used when the CP is added to a CP Group. When the CP Group is
saved, its CP settings are saved with it. Thus, a particular CP may be defined as
"Input" in one group but as "Output" in another. Only one group containing any
particular CP may be enabled at once.
CPM: Groups
The CP Groups settings allow for the management of CP groups. Groups can be created or
deleted. CPs can be added to or removed from groups. A group, based on its state, can trigger
outside events (such as sending email messages). Only an enabled group can be a trigger.

13: Branding the XPort Pro Lx6
This chapter describes how to brand your XPort Pro Lx6 embedded device server by using Web
Manager and Command Line Interface (CLI). It contains the following sections on customization:
Web Manager Customization
Short and Long Name Customization
Web Manager Customization
Customize the Web Manager's appearance by modifying index.html, style.css, and the product
logo. The style (fonts, colors, and spacing) of the Web Manager is controlled with style.css. The
text and graphics are controlled with index.html. The product logo is the image in top-left corner of
the page and defaults to a product name image.
Note: The recommended dimensions of the new graphic are 300px width and 50px
height.
The Web Manager files are hidden and are incorporated directly into the firmware image but may
be overridden by placing the appropriate file in the appropriate directory on the XPort Pro Lx6 file
system.
Web Manager files can be retrieved and overridden with the following procedure:
1. FTP to the XPort Pro Lx6 device.
2. Make a directory (mkdir) and name it http/config .
3. Change to the directory (cd) that you created in step 2 (http/config).
4. Save the contents of index.html and style.css by using a web browser and navigating to
http://<XPort Pro Lx6 ip address>/config/index.html and http://<XPort
Pro Lx6 ip address>/config/style.css.
5. Modify the file as required or create a new one with the same name.
6. To customize the product logo, save the image of your choice as
XPort_Pro_Lx6_logo.gif .
7. Put the file(s) by using put <filename>.
8. Type quit. The overriding files appear in the file system's http/config directory.
9. Restart any open browser to view the changes.
10. If you wish to go back to the default files in the firmware image, simply delete the overriding
files from the file system.

Appendix C: Binary to Hexadecimal Conversions
Many of the unit's configuration procedures require you to assemble a series of options
(represented as bits) into a complete command (represented as a byte).
The resulting binary value must be converted to a hexadecimal representation.
Use this chapter to learn to convert binary values to hexadecimals or to look up hexadecimal
values in the tables of configuration options. The tables include:
Command Mode (serial string sign-on message)
AES Keys
Converting Binary to Hexadecimal
Following are two simple ways to convert binary
numbers to hexadecimal notation.
Conversion Table
Hexadecimal digits have values ranging from 0 to F,
which are represented as 0-9, A (for 10), B (for 11),
etc. To convert a binary value (for example, 0100
1100) to a hexadecimal representation, treat the
upper and lower four bits separately to produce a two-
digit hexadecimal number (in this case, 4C). Use the
following table to convert values from binary to
hexadecimal.
Scientific Calculator
Another simple way to convert binary to hexadecimal
is to use a scientific calculator, such as the one
available on the Windows operating systems. For
example:
1. On the Windows Start menu, click Programs ->
Accessories -> Calculator.
2. On the View menu, select Scientific. The
scientific calculator appears.
3. Click Bin (Binary), and type the number you want
to convert.
