Preparing Net Bridge

This section describes how to prepare the Net Bridge.

Before you start:

  • Connect the Net Bridge according to separate instructions. You can also connect the bus devices at this phase, if necessary. You can test the server connection at the office before installation without any bus devices, if both the office and the site use the DHCP protocol to provide the IP address and other related network configuration information.
  • Remove the empty token from the token holder in the Net Bridge.
  • You will need a USB memory stick. The memory stick must not be encrypted, and it must be formatted as FAT32.
  • Ensure that you have the appropriate licenses for the bus devices that will be connected to the Net Bridge.
  • You will need the locking system master password in this procedure.

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 Net Bridge in the drop down menu.
    • License — Select Net Bridge license type. Two new fields become available:
      • Count of reserved bus devices — Define the number of bus devices you are planning to connect to this Net Bridge.
      • Count of connected bus devices — This flow field indicates the current number of connected devices. As we are adding a Net Bridge, the count is 0.
    • Has key programming hot spot — Select this check box if the network module will have at least one 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 addressService 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.


      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. If necessary, fill in the local network settings.
    If the Net Bridge 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.
  10. Select Next.
  11. If necessary, change the number of the firewall port for receiving messages. Ask the required data from the network administrator.
  12. Select Next.
  13. Connect a memory stick to the computer USB port.
  14. 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).
  15. Select Next.
  16. A summary screen is shown.
  17. Select Ready.
  18. Type in the locking system master password.
  19. Insert the empty token that you took from the token holder, to the Programmer socket.
    Ensure that the token clicks to its place.
  20. Wait until the token is programmed.
  21. Insert the login token to the the Programmer socket.
    Ensure that the token clicks to its place.
  22. Select Close.
  23. Insert the token to the token holder in the Net Bridge.
  24. Insert the memory stick to the Net Bridge USB port.
  25. Switch the  switch to ON.
    1. An internal test procedure is started.
    2. Check that the USB indicator blinks green five times, indicating that it is reading data from the memory stick. It it does not blink green, the Net Bridge cannot read the memory stick. If this is the case, try to add the Net Bridge with another memory stick, or format the memory stick to the FAT32 file system.
    3. Constant green FUNC, SYSTEM STATUS and possibly SERVER CONN. are illuminated to indicate that the server connection has been successfully tested.
  26. If SERVER CONN. is illuminated green, the Net Bridge has reported itself to the server.
  27. Switch the  switch to STANDBY.
  28. The Net Bridge is now ready for use.
  29. 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.
