How can we access InfraStruXure PDU(PDRPPH1000) remotely ?

Remote access to the control console : 

From any computer on the same subnet as the InfraStruXure PDU, you can use ARP and Ping to
assign an IP address to an InfraStruXure PDU, and then use Telnet to access that InfraStruXure
PDUís control console and configure the needed TCP/IP settings. 

Note : After an InfraStruXure PDU has its IP address configured, you can use Telnet, without
first using ARP and Ping, to access that InfraStruXure PDU.


1. Use ARP to define an IP address for the InfraStruXure PDU, and use the InfraStruXure PDUís
MAC address in the ARP command. For example, to define an IP address of 156.205.14.141 for
an InfraStruXure PDU that has a MAC address of 00 c0 b7 63 9f 67, use one of the following
commands:
ñ Windows command format:
arp -s 156.205.14.141 00-c0-b7-63-9f-67
ñ LINUX command format:
arp -s 156.205.14.141 00:c0:b7:63:9f:67
2. Use Ping with a size of 113 bytes to assign the IP address defined by the ARP command. For the
IP address defined in step 1, use one of the following Ping commands:
ñ Windows command format:
ping 156.205.14.141 -l 113
ñ LINUX command format:
ping 156.205.14.141 -s 113
3. Use Telnet to access the InfraStruXure PDU at its newly assigned IP address. For example:
telnet 156.205.14.141
4. Use apc for both User Name and Password.
5. See ìControl consoleî on this page to finish the configuration.
