Adding a Net Box

This section describes how to add a Net Box to iLOQ Locking System.

Before you start:

  • Connect the network module according to separate instructions. However, you do not have to install the network modules at the site, if the site uses the DHCP protocol to provide the IP address and other related configuration information for network modules.
  • Switch off the network module, and remove the empty token from the token holder in the network module.
  • You will need a USB memory stick. The memory must not be encrypted, and it must be formatted as FAT32.
  • Ensure that you have the appropriate license for the network module.
  • You will need the locking system master password in the installation.

Proceed as follows.

  1. Select Administration > Browse network modules.

  2. Select Add network module.
    The Adding a network module wizard is opened.
  3. Select Add network module.
  4. Enter the basic information for the network module, as follows:
    • Name — Enter a name for the new network module in this field. Use a descriptive name. You can use, for example, a name that reminds you of the network module location.
    • Type — Select the desired network module type in the drop down menu.
    • License — Select the correct license type in the drop down menu.
    • Has key programming hot spot — Select this check box if the network module has a key programming hot spot connected to it.

    Select the Active radio button. You can select the Not in use radio button if you do not have an active license yet, but you want to configure the network module anyway.

  5. Select Next.
  6. Select Next.
  7. Fill in the network module settings as follows:
    • Service address — Service address is the locking system server address. Accept the suggested address.

    • User ID — Select the User ID for the network module in the drop-down menu.

      If there are no users in the User ID drop-down menu, select Add new network module user to add a new user, and follow the wizard.

      Tip:

      Usually one network module user for each locking system is enough, even with several network modules in use.

    • Password — Enter the Password for the network module user, in this field.

  8. Select Next.
  9. Fill in network module timing settings as follows:
    • Change timing settings — Check the Change timing settings check box if you want to change the audit trail collect interval.

    • Audit trail collect interval — Select the desired audit trail collect interval in this drop-down menu. The options are:

      • No schedule — Select this option to not collect the audit trail automatically.
      • Once in a week — Select this option to collect audit trails weekly.
      • Once in a day — Select this option to collect audit trails daily.
    • Note:

      This applies to network modules with a Pro license only.

  10. Select Next.
  11. If necessary, fill in the local network settings.
    If the network module is located in a network where IP addresses are obtained from a DHCP server, you do not have to fill in the local network settings. However, if this is not the case, ask the required data from the network administrator.
  12. Select Next.
  13. If necessary, change the number of the firewall port for receiving messages. Ask the required data from the network administrator.
  14. Select Next.
  15. Connect a memory stick to the computer USB port.
  16. Select the Save file to memory stick radio button, and select the disk drive of the memory stick (for example, J:\). The program adds the file name automatically.
    Alternatively, you can select the Save file to disk radio button to save the file onto your hard disk, in the directory of your choice, and copy it to the memory stick later. If this is the case, remember to paste the file to the root directory of the memory stick (not to a subdirectory).
  17. Select Next.
  18. A summary screen is shown.
  19. Select Ready.
  20. Type in the locking system master password.
  21. Insert the empty token that you took from the token holder, to the Programmer socket.
    Ensure that the token clicks to its place.
  22. Wait until the token is programmed.
  23. Insert the login token to the the Programmer socket.
    Ensure that the token clicks to its place.
  24. Select Close.
  25. Insert the token to the token holder in the network module.
  26. Insert the memory stick to the network module USB port.
  27. Switch on the network module.
  28. Follow the LED sequence:
    1. Green ST2 is illuminated to indicate that the master token is in its place.
    2. An internal test procedure is started. During the procedure, the ST1 blinks orange a couple of times
    3. Check that the ST1 blinks green five times, indicating that it is reading data from the memory stick. If it does not blink green, and turns red, the network module cannot read the memory stick. If this is the case, try to add the network module with another memory stick, or format the memory stick to the FAT32 file system.
    4. Constant green ST1 is illuminated to indicate that the server connection has been successfully tested.
  29. The network module reports itself to the server.
  30. The network module is now ready for use.
  31. Place the network module onto the floor plan.
    The procedure is similar to the process of placing locks onto the floor plan. For more information, see section Placing Locks onto a Floor Plan.
