Installing Virtual COM port software (Jupiter only)

After the virtual COM port has been configured, you need to install the software.

  1. Insert the DIGI CD in your CD ROM drive.
  2. The setup wizard will automatically be displayed on your screen. If not, navigate to the CD ROM drive and double-click setup.exe.

  3. Click Next and the setup wizard will search your network to locate the DIGI One SP device server.

  4. Select the device server according to its specific MAC address.
  5. Take note of the device IP address and click Next.

  6. In the Network Settings section, select IP and enter the IP address that had been retrieved by the setup wizard.
  7. In the COM Port Settings section, set the number of ports to 1 and select the appropriate COM port from the Starting COM drop down list. This will be your virtual COM port.
  8. Click Finish.

    The setup wizard will install the software.
  9. Click Finish after the installation is done.
    Note: Once you have configured the virtual COM port, you need to enter the COM port number in the router configuration panel of the GV STRATUS Control Panel.
  10. To avoid unnecessary timeouts on RS422 communication, you need to set the Digi One SP optimization routine to Latency. This can be done by launching the configuration page on your web browser. If needed, the default username/password for the Digi One configuration page is root/dbps.
  11. Then, go to the System Configuration page and select Latency from the Optimization dropdown list.
