MatchPort User Guide 2
Disclaimer
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B
digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy
and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one of the following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2)
this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
This device is intended only for OEM Integrators. The OEM integrator should be
aware of the following important issues.
Labeling of the End Product
The label of the end product integrating this module must clearly indicate that the end
product contains an FCC approved RF module. The format of such statement could
be "Contains Transmitter with FCC ID: R68MTCHDRCT" or something similar.
RSS-GEN Sections 7.1.4 and 7.1.5 Statement for Devices with Detachable
Antennas
This device has been designed to operate with the antennas listed in the Certificate,
and having a maximum gain of 5 dBi. Antennas not included in this list or having a
gain greater than 5 dBi are strictly prohibited for use with this device. The required
antenna impedance is 50 ohms.
To reduce potential radio interference to other users, the antenna type and its gain
should be so chosen that the equivalent isotropically radiated power (EIRP) is not
more than that required for successful communication.
Integration Note
a) This module is authorized under limited module approval specified to mobile host
equipment. So, the antenna must be installed such that 20cm is maintained between
the antenna and users.
b) The transmitter module may not be co-located with any other transmitter or
antenna.
As long as the two conditions above are met, further transmitter testing will not be
required. However, the OEM integrator is still responsible for testing their end product
for any additional compliance requirements required with this module installed (for
example, digital device emission, PC peripheral requirements, etc.)
MatchPort User Guide 3
Note: In the event that these conditions cannot be met (for example certain
laptop configurations, general purpose PCMCIA or similar cards, or co-
location with another transmitter), then the FCC authorization is no longer
considered valid and the FCC ID cannot be used on the final product
(including the transmitter) and obtaining a separate FCC authorization.
Note: Changes or modifications to this device not explicitly approved by Lantronix will
void the user's authority to operate this device.

MatchPort User Guide 11
2: Introduction
MatchPort is an embedded device server that provides a network-enabling solution.
This User Guide covers two MatchPort devices: MatchPort b/g, which is a wireless
version based on the IEEE 802.11b/g wireless standard, and MatchPort NR, which is
a wired (Ethernet) version. MatchPort allows Original Equipment Manufacturers
(OEMs) to add network connectivity (wireless or wired) to their products by
incorporating it onto a circuit board.
The MatchPort functions independently of a PC, providing a fully integrated solution
that combines a processor, memory, Ethernet connection, and 921 Kbps (maximum)
baud rate serial ports into a single compact module. It includes an operating system,
an embedded Web server, and a full TCP/IP protocol stack. In addition, the
MatchPort sends email alerts and supports numerous other network communication
protocols, including ARP, UDP, TCP, ICMP, Telnet, AutoIP, DHCP, HTTP, SNMP,
and SMTP. The MatchPort b/g unit provides an 802.11b/g transceiver as well.
For OEMs who wish to customize the user interface by employing common and
familiar tools, the MatchPort serves applets to a Web browser, resulting in interactive
Web pages. This customization of HTML Web pages and configuration screens
tailors the MatchPort to fit unique requirements.
MatchPort b/g Specific
With the MatchPort b/g, Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP), Wireless Protected Access
(WPA), and 802.11i/WPA2-Personal are available to guarantee the security of the
wireless communication. WEP uses an RC4 encryption algorithm with a configured
64-bit or 104-bit key to scramble the data. WPA uses TKIP, which expands upon
WEP by changing the key automatically every session, detecting intrusion and using
improved authentication.
Lantronix's exclusive SmartRoam technology takes a proactive approach to
transferring connectivity from one Access Point (AP) to another AP belonging to the
same ESS (having the same SSID or Network Name). SmartRoam continuously
tracks the signal strength of APs within range to smoothly and automatically transition
to an AP with a stronger signal.
Two models of the MatchPort b/g are available: one with AES encryption and one
without.
MatchPort User Guide 12

network communications and management.
TCP, UDP, and Telnet for connections to the serial ports.
TFTP for firmware and Web page updates.
IP for addressing, routing, and data block handling over the network.
User Datagram Protocol (UDP) for typical datagram applications in which devices
interact with other devices without maintaining a point-to-point connection.
SMTP for email transmission.
MatchPort User Guide 13
2: Introduction
Configuration Methods
For the unit to operate correctly on a network, it must have a unique IP address on
the network. There are three basic methods for logging into the device server:
DeviceInstaller: View the current MatchPort configuration using a Graphical User
Interface (GUI) on a PC attached to a network. (See 3: Using DeviceInstaller.)
Web-Manager: Through a Web interface, configure the MatchPort and its settings.
(See 4: Configuration Using Web-Manager.)
Serial & Telnet Ports: There are two approaches to accessing Serial Mode. Make a
Telnet connection to the network port (9999) or connect a terminal (or a PC running a
terminal emulation program) to serial port 1. (See 5: Configuration via Serial Mode or
Telnet Port.)
Addresses and Port Numbers
Hardware Address
The hardware address is also referred to as the Ethernet address or the MAC
address. The first three bytes of the Ethernet address are fixed and read 00-20-4A,
identifying the unit as a Lantronix product. The fourth, fifth, and sixth bytes are unique
numbers assigned to each unit.
Example: 00-20-4A-14-01-18
Note: Make note of the MAC address. It is needed to locate the MatchPort
using DeviceInstaller.
IP Address
Every device connected to an IP network must have a unique IP address used to
reference the specific unit. The MatchPort is automatically assigned an IP address on
DHCP-enabled networks, as it is DHCP-enabled by default.
Port Numbers
Every TCP connection and every UDP datagram is defined by a destination IP
address and a port number. For example, a Telnet application commonly uses port
number 23. A port number is similar to an extension on a phone system.
The unit's serial channel (port) can be associated with a specific TCP/UDP port
number. Port number 9999 is reserved for access to the unit's Setup (configuration)
Mode window. Ports 0-1024 are reserved as well. For more information on reserved
port numbers, refer to Table 5-6. Reserved Port Numbers.

3: Using DeviceInstaller
This chapter covers the steps for viewing the MatchPort device server’s properties
and device details.
Note: DeviceInstaller is a free utility program provided by Lantronix that
discovers, configures, upgrades, and manages Lantronix Device Servers. It
can be downloaded from the Lantronix website at
www.lantronix.com/support/downloads.
For instructions on using DeviceInstaller to configure the IP address and
related settings or for more advanced features, see the DeviceInstaller
Online Help.
The MatchPort’s default configuration is BOOTP, DHCP, and AutoIP enabled. For the
MatchPort b/g, additional default configurations are:
Network name: LTRX_IBSS
Ad hoc mode
No security
The computer on which DeviceInstaller will be installed must be on the same local
subnet or, for the MatchPort b/g, it needs to have access to a wireless card with the
same settings. Set the IP address to 0.0.0.0.
Note: AutoIP generates a random IP address in the range 169.254.0.1 to
169.254.255.254 if no BOOTP or DHCP server is found.

when packets are sent to the network. The standard algorithm
is optimized for applications in which the unit is used in a local
environment, allowing for very small delays for single
characters, while keeping the packet count low. The alternate
packing algorithm minimizes the packet count on the network
and is especially useful in applications in a routed Wide Area
Network (WAN). Adjusting parameters in this mode can
economize the network data stream.
Idle Gap Time Select the maximum time for inactivity. The default time is 12
milliseconds.
Match 2 Byte Sequence Use to indicate the end of a series of data to be sent as one
group. Two bytes must occur sequentially to indicate to the

Advanced Settings
TX Data Rate MatchPort permits the control of the transmission data rate.
Click the Auto fallback check box to allow the MatchPort to
set the data rate automatically (or leave unchecked to set the
transmission rate manually). The default rate is 54 Mbps.
If the Auto fallback check box is selected, choose the
maximum data rate from the drop-down list.
If the Auto fallback check box was not selected, select the
fixed data rate (in Mbps) from the drop-down list.
Min TX Data Rate Selects the minimum data rate the device will use when auto-
fallback is enabled. The default is 1 Mbps.
Note: If Auto Rate Fallback is enabled and a minimum TX
data rate other than 1Mbps is configured, the radio will
operate in Single Rate Drop mode. This means that if a rate
drop becomes necessary, the radio will drop from the
maximum rate to the lowest rate, ignoring all rates in between.
This reduces the potential number of packet retransmission
attempts, because the radio attempts to transmit a packet
three times before transitioning to the next lowest TX rate.
Max TX Failures Determines the maximum number of consecutive transmit
packet failures before the device will drop its association with
the AP and attempt to establish a new one. The range of
attempts is 6 to 64 with 255 equaling disabled. The default is 6
failed attempts.
Radio Power
Management Power management reduces the overall power consumption
of the MatchPort unit. Selecting Enable increases the
response time. Power management is not permitted in Ad-Hoc
mode.

AP Roaming SmartRoam technology takes a proactive approach in transfer
ring connectivity from one AP to another AP belonging to the
same ESS (having the same SSID or Network Name).
If enabled, SmartRoam manages the dynamic list of APs
belonging to the same network as the AP to which the
MatchPort b/g is currently associated and stores relevant
selection criteria for this list. The MatchPort b/g uses these
criteria to identify a candidate AP. If the candidate AP is not
the current one, the MatchPort b/g dissociates from the
current one and associates to the candidate.
The roaming technology also triggers candidate selection if
the MatchPort b/g reaches the boundaries of good signal
coverage for the current AP instead of waiting until signal
quality degrades substantially.

5: Configuration via Serial Mode or Telnet Port
As an alternative to Web-Manager, you can configure the MatchPort unit using a
terminal program to access serial port 1 locally. Using this terminal program to
respond to prompts is referred to as being in Setup Mode. Another way to access
Setup Mode is over the network through a Telnet connection.
The unit’s configuration is stored in nonvolatile memory and is retained without
power. You can change the configuration at any time. The unit performs a reset after
the configuration has been changed and stored.
Note: The menus in this section show a typical device. Not all devices
display information in the same manner. For example, the MatchPort NR
does not display the WLAN setup menu option as the device does not
support wireless connectivity.
Accessing Setup Mode
Telnet Access
To configure the unit over the network, establish a Telnet connection to port 9999.
Note: Alternatively, use DeviceInstaller to access Telnet. Select the device from the
main page list, and click the Telnet Configuration tab in the right page. If using
Telnet from the DeviceInstaller toolbar, skip steps 1 through 3.
1. From the Windows Start menu, click Run.
2. From the Run dialogue box, type the following command (where x.x.x.x is the IP
address and 9999 is the unit’s fixed network configuration port number):
Windows: telnet x.x.x.x 9999
UNIX: telnet x.x.x.x:9999

The DNS server allows the name of a remote machine to be resolved automatically.
The default is N (No), indicating the DNS server address has not been set. To set the
DNS server address, type Y. At the prompt, enter the DNS server address. If the
device is DHCP enabled, the DHCP server provides the DNS server IP address,
which will override this configured value.
Note: This setting is applicable only in Manual Connection mode.

MatchPort User Guide 45
5: Configuration via Serial Mode or Telnet Port
An enhanced password setting (for Telnet access only) of 16 characters is available
under option 6 Security from the Change Setup menu.
Note: A password is not required to access the Setup Mode window through
a serial connection.
DHCP Name
If a DHCP server has automatically assigned the IP address and network settings,
discover the unit by using the DeviceInstaller network search feature.
There are three methods for assigning DHCP names to the unit.
Default DHCP Name: If the DHCP name is not changed and the IP is 0.0.0.0,
then the DHCP name defaults to CXXXXXX (XXXXXX is the last 6 digits of the
MAC address shown on the label on the bottom/side of the unit). For example, if
the MAC address is 00-20-4A-12-34-56, then the default DHCP name is
C123456.
Custom DHCP Name: Create your own DHCP name. If using an IP address of
0.0.0.0, the last option in Server configuration is Change DHCP device name.
This option allows you to change the DHCP name to an alphanumeric name
(LTX in the example).
Change DHCP device name (not set) ? (N) Y
Enter new DHCP device name : LTX
Numeric DHCP Name: You can change the DHCP name by specifying the last
octet of the IP address. When you use this method, the DHCP name is LTXYY
where YY is what you chose for the last octet of the IP address. If the IP address
you specify is 0.0.0.12, the DHCP name is LTX12. This method only works with
2-digit numbers (0-99).
The third octet of the IP address sets the BootP/DHCP/AutoIP options. To
disable an option, set the appropriate bit:
Table 5-2. BootP/DHCP/AutoIP Options
Options
Bit
AutoIP 0
DHCP 1
BootP 2
For example, if the third octet is 0.0.5.0, the AutoIP and BootP options are
disabled; only DHCP is enabled. (The value 5 results from adding the binary
equivalents of 0 and 2.) This is the most common setting when using DHCP.
Enable DHCP FQDN: You can choose to enable or disable DHCP FQDN by
specifying Y or N.
Channel 1 and Channel 2 Configuration
Select option 1 Channel 1 or 2 Channel 2 from the Change Setup menu to define
how the serial port responds to network and serial communications. The following

the unit with this port number are received to this channel. The port number selected
is the Incoming TCP/UDP port and Outgoing TCP/UDP source port.
Port No (10001) ? _
The current value displays in parentheses. The default settings are 10001 for Port 1
and 10002 for Port 2. The range is 1-65535, except for the following reserved port
numbers:

Note: We recommend that you not use the reserved port numbers for this
setting as incorrect operation may result.
Use Port 0 for the outgoing local port to change with each connection. The port range
is 50,000 to 59,999. Each subsequent connection increments the number by 1 (it
wraps back around to 50,000).
Only use this automatic port increment feature to initiate a connection using TCP. Set
the port to a non-zero value when the unit is in a passive mode or when using UDP
instead of TCP.

No Active Startup Does not attempt to initiate a connection. Default setting.
With Any Character Attempts to connect when any character is received from the

With active Modem
Control In Attempts to connect when the Modem Control In input changes
from not asserted to asserted.
With a Specific Start
Character Attempts to connect when it receives a specific start character
from the serial port. The default start character is carriage return.
Manual Connection Attempts to connect when directed by a command string
received from the serial port. The first character of the command
string must be a C (ASCII 0x43), and the last character must be
either a carriage return (ASCII 0x0D) or a line feed (0x0A). No
blanks or space characters may be in the command string.
Between the first and last command string characters must be a
full or partial destination IP address and can include a
destination port number.
The IP address must be in standard dot-decimal notation and
may be a partial address, representing the least significant 1, 2,
or 3 bytes of the remote IP address. The period is required
between each pair of IP address numbers.
If present, the port number must follow the IP address, must be
presented as a decimal number in the range 1-65535, and must
be preceded by a forward slash (ASCII 0x2F). The slash
separates the IP address and the port number. If you omit the
port number from a command string, the internally stored remote
port number starts a connection.
If a partial IP address is presented in a command string, it is
interpreted to be the least significant bytes of the IP address and
uses the internally stored remote IP address to provide the most
significant bytes of the IP address. If the IP address entered is
0.0.0.0/0, the device server enters Monitor Mode.
For example, if the remote IP address already configured in the
unit is 129.1.2.3, then an example command string would be
C3/7. (This would connect to 129.1.2.3 and port 7.) You may
also use a different ending for the connection string. For
example, C50.1/23 would connect you to 129.1.50.1 and port 23.
If an IP address does not follow the first command string
character (which is "C"), the subsequent character string is
interpreted as the host name and domain to be used in DNS
lookup. This character string can include a destination port
number as well. The port number can be preceded by either a
forward slash (/) or a colon ( : ).

Autostart (Automatic
Connection) The unit automatically attempts a connection to the remote IP
address and port after booting up.
Hostlist If this option is set to True, the device server scrolls through the
host list until it connects to the first available device listed in the
host list table. Once it connects, the unit stops further attempts. If
this connection fails, the unit continues to scroll through the table
until it is able to connect to the next available IP address in the
host list.
The host list supports a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 12
entries. Each entry contains the IP address and the port number.
The hostlist is disabled for Manual and Modem Modes. The unit
will not accept a data connection from a remote device when the
hostlist option is enabled.

defined in the product.
2. To delete, modify, or add an entry, select Yes. If you enter an IP address of
0.0.0.0, that entry and all others after it are deleted.
3. After completing the hostlist, repeat the previous step if necessary to edit the
hostlist again.
4. For Retrycounter, enter the number of times the Lantronix unit should try to
make a good network connection to a hostlist entry that it has successfully
ARPed. The range is 1-15, with the default set to 3.
5. For Retrytimeout, enter the number of seconds the unit should wait before
failing an attempted connection. The time is stored as units of milliseconds in the
range of 10-65535. The default is 250.
d)Datagram Type
Directed UDP When selecting this option, you are prompted for the Datagram type.
Enter 01 for directed or broadcast UDP. Datagrams of type 01 can be
sent as a broadcast by enabling this option. The default is not to
broadcast.
Note: Datagrams are sent as subnet-directed broadcasts.
When the UDP option is in effect, the unit never attempts to initiate a
TCP connection because it uses UDP datagrams to send and receive
data.

e)Modem Mode
In Modem (Emulation) Mode, the unit presents a modem interface to the attached
serial device. It accepts AT-style modem commands and handles the modem signals
correctly.
Normally, there is a modem connected to a local PC and a modem connected to a
remote machine. A user must dial from the local PC to the remote machine,
accumulating phone charges for each connection. Modem Mode allows you to
replace modems with MatchPorts, and to use an Ethernet connection instead of a
phone call. By not having to change communications applications, you avoid
potentially expensive phone calls.
To select Modem Mode, set the Connect Mode to C6 (no echo), D6 (echo with full
verbose), D7 (echo with numeric response), CF (modem responses only, numeric
response), or CE (modem responses only, full verbose).
Note: If the unit is in Modem Mode, and the serial port is idle, the unit can
still accept network TCP connections to the serial port if Connect Mode is set
to C6 (no echo), D6 (echo with full verbose), D7 (echo with numeric
response), CF (modem responses only, numeric response), or CE (modem
responses only, full verbose).
Without Echo In Modem Mode, echo refers to the echo of all of the characters
entered in command mode; it does not mean to echo data that is
transferred. Quiet Mode (without echo) refers to the modem not
sending an answer to the commands received (or displaying what
was typed).
Echo & Modem
Response Full Verbose: The unit echoes modem commands and responds

4 Error
Received commands must begin with the two-character sequence AT and be
terminated with a carriage return character.
The unit ignores any character sequence received not starting with AT, and only
recognizes and processes single AT-style commands. The unit treats compound AT
commands as unrecognized commands.
If the Full Verbose option is in effect, the unit responds to an unrecognized
command string that is otherwise formatted correctly (begins with AT and ends with
carriage return) with the "OK" message and takes no further action.
If the Numeric Response option is in effect, the unit responds to an unrecognized
command string that is otherwise formatted correctly with the "OK" message and
takes no further action.
When an active connection is in effect, the unit transfers data and does not process
commands received from the serial interface.
When a connection is terminated or lost, the unit reverts to command mode.
When an active connection is in effect, the unit terminates the connection if it
receives the following sequence from the attached serial device:
No serial data is received for one second.
The character sequence +++ is received, with no more than one second between
each two characters.
No serial data is received for one second after the last + character. At this time,
the unit responds affirmatively according to the selected echo/response mode.
The character string ATH is received, terminated with a carriage return. The unit
responds affirmatively according to the selected echo/response mode and drops
the network connection. The serial interface reverts to accepting command
strings.
If this sequence is not followed, the unit remains in data transfer mode.

Pack Control
The packing algorithm defines how and when packets are sent to the network. The
standard algorithm is optimized for applications in which the unit is used in a local
environment. The alternate packing algorithm minimizes the packet count on the
network and is especially useful in applications in a routed Wide Area Network
(WAN). Adjusting parameters in this mode can economize the network data stream.
Pack control settings are enabled in Flush Mode. Set this value to 00 if specific
functions are not needed.

Packing Interval: Packing Interval defines how long the unit should wait before
sending accumulated characters. This wait period is between successive network
segments containing data. For alternate packing, the default interval is 12 ms.
Trailing Characters: In some applications, CRC, Checksum, or other trailing
characters follow the end-of-sequence character; this option helps to adapt frame
transmission to the frame boundary.
Send Characters:
If 2-Byte Send Character Sequence is enabled, the unit interprets the
sendchars as a 2-byte sequence; if this option is not enabled, the unit interprets
them independently.
If Send Immediately After Characters is not set, any characters already in the
serial buffer are included in the transmission after a "transmit" condition is found.
If this option is set, the unit sends immediately after recognizing the transmit
condition (sendchar or timeout).
MatchPort User Guide 59
5: Configuration via Serial Mode or Telnet Port
Note: A transmission might occur if status information needs to be
exchanged or an acknowledgment needs to be sent.
DisConnTime (Inactivity Timeout)
Use this parameter to set an inactivity timeout. The unit drops the connection if there
is no activity on the serial line before the set time expires. Enter time in the format
mm:ss, where m is the number of minutes and s is the number of seconds.
DisConnTime (0: 0) ?:
To disable the inactivity timeout, enter 00:00. Range is 0 (disabled) to 5999 seconds
(99 minutes, 59 seconds). The default is 0.
SendChar 1 and SendChar 2
Enter up to two characters in hexadecimal representation.
SendChar 1 ( 0) ? _
SendChar 2 ( 0) ? _
If the unit receives a character on the serial line that matches one of these
characters, it sends the character immediately, along with any awaiting characters, to
the TCP connection. This action minimizes the response time for specific protocol
characters on the serial line (for example, ETX, EOT). Setting the first SendChar to
00 disables the recognition of the characters. Alternatively, the unit can interpret two
characters as a sequence (see Pack Control).
Telnet Terminal Type
This parameter displays only if the terminal type option is enabled in Disconnect
Mode. If this option is enabled, use the terminal name for the Telnet terminal type.
Enter only one name.
If the terminal type option is enabled, the unit also reacts to the EOR (end of record)
and binary options, which can be used for applications such as terminal emulation to
UNIX hosts.
Channel (Port) Password
This parameter appears only if the channel (port) password option is enabled in
Disconnect Mode. If the option is enabled, set a password on the serial port.
Email Configuration
The unit sends an email to multiple recipients when a specific trigger event occurs.
There are three separate triggers, based on any combination of the configurable pins
(PIO) when selected as user I/O functions. Optionally, use a two-byte serial string to
initiate a trigger. To configure email configuration settings, select option 3 Email from
the Change Setup menu.

WLAN Settings (MatchPort b/g Only)
Without adequate protection, a wireless LAN is susceptible to access by
unauthorized users. As such, MatchPort features the WPA security standard, based
on IEEE802.11i and IEEE802.1X. WEP provides for backwards compatibility and
interaction with older devices.
When in WPA and WPA2-PERSONAL modes, the encryption setting denotes the
lowest acceptable encryption method. CCMP is higher than TKIP and TKIP is higher
than WEP. For example, if the MatchPort is configured for WEP and the access point
supports TKIP, the negotiation results the use of TKIP. If the MatchPort is configured
for TKIP and the access point supports only WEP, the association will fail since the
access point does not meet the MatchPort’s requirements.
Unicast communication occurs between the access point and a single wireless
device. It uses the pairwise encryption method. Multicast communication occurs
between the access point and multiple wireless devices. It uses the group encryption
method. The group encryption for all wireless devices communicating with the same
access point must be equal to receive broadcast and multicast messages. If any
device is WEP-only (no support for WPA), set the encryption to TKIP+WEP. To use
higher security with the MatchPort than other devices connecting to the same access
point, use a group encryption lower than the pairwise encryption.
Note: Due to regulations, the country-specific setting has been removed from
the setup menu and Web-Manager. However, we provide a separate utility
for changing the Country/Zone setting. The utility is called SetZone and is
included in the MatchPort package. It is also available for download from the
Lantronix Web site.
The syntax is SetZone <IP address> [<zone abbreviation>]
Leaving the zone blank causes the utility to report the current setting only.

Transmission Data Rate
If the above TX Data rate is set to fixed, the selected data rate is the MatchPort’s
fixed transmission rate. If the above TX Data rate is set to auto fallback, the
selected data rate is the MatchPort’s maximum data rate. Lower data rates allow for
larger distances. It may also be required when communicating with older devices.
The default is 54 Mbps.

Minimum TX Data Rate 0=1, 1=2, 2=5.5, 3=11, 4=18, 5=24, 6=36,
7=54 Mbps <0> ? _
Note: If Auto Rate Fallback is enabled and a minimum TX data rate other than
1Mbps is configured, the radio will operate in Single Rate Drop mode. This means
that if a rate drop becomes necessary, the radio will drop from the maximum rate to
the lowest rate, ignoring all rates in between. This reduces the potential number of
packet retransmission attempts, because the radio attempts to transmit a packet
three times before transitioning to the next lowest TX rate.
Note: If the Minimum TX Data Rate is set for 54 Mbps for the minimum and
maximum, the auto fallback capability is eliminated.
Max TX Failures
Determines the maximum number of consecutive transmit packet failures before the
device will drop its association with the AP and attempt to establish a new one. The
range of attempts is 6 to 64; 255 equals disabled. The default is 6 failed attempts.

Enable Power Management
This allows the software to turn off the radio when expecting not to receive or
transmit soon. This feature reduces the power consumption by up to 140 mA.
Enabling power management increases the response time, because the radio needs
MatchPort User Guide 67
5: Configuration via Serial Mode or Telnet Port
to start up again. The radio is enabled to synchronize and check for incoming
messages (every 100 ms).
Note: This option is not available when the Topology is set to Adhoc.
Enable power management (N) ? _
Enable Soft AP Roaming
If enabled, SmartRoam manages the dynamic list of APs belonging to the same
network as the AP to which the MatchPort is currently associated and stores relevant
selection criteria for this list. The MatchPort uses these criteria to identify a candidate
AP. If the candidate AP is not the current one, the MatchPort dissociates from the
current AP and associates to the candidate.
The roaming technology also triggers candidate selection if the MatchPort reaches
the boundaries of good signal coverage for the current AP instead of waiting until
signal quality degrades substantially.
Choose to enable Y (Yes) or disable N (No) Lantronix's Smart Roam technology. The
default value is N.

6: Configurable Pins
The MatchPort has eight pins configurable for General Purpose I/O (GPIO).
Use these GPIO pins to control devices such as relays, servers, lights, monitor
switches, sensors, and even processes such as data transfer.
Defaults Settings
Function: general purpose input/output
Direction: input
Active Level: low
Set the functions for the eight pins independently and in any combination. The initial
directions (input/output) and active levels (low or high active) at boot up can also be
configured through 77FE.
This chapter describes how the directions, active levels, and states can be
dynamically controlled and probed through special port 77F0.
Features
TCP and UDP can be used.
The protocol supports up to 32 GPIO for future products.
Function configuration can be retrieved.
Input or output selection can be retrieved and controlled.
Active low or high selection can be retrieved and controlled.
Active or inactive selection can be retrieved and controlled.
77F0 can be disabled.
Every change of state (active/inactive) requires a command over TCP or UDP, and
thus is not very fast. If you use this port for data transfer, the throughput is low,
usually up to 1 Kbps.
Control Protocol
The GPIO control protocol, a simple, proprietary protocol, is described below.
Guidelines
The GPIO control protocol is described from the PC side. Send means from PC to
MatchPort. Response comes from MatchPort to PC.
The protocol allows for control of up to 8 GPIOs.
MatchPort User Guide 76
7: Configurable Pins
The parameters are four bytes long and represent GPIOs 0-31, with GPIO0 in bit 0 of
the first byte (Little Endian). Parameter bits for configurable pins not configured as
GPIOs are undefined for Get commands and ignored on Set commands.
Every command consists of nine bytes: one command type of one byte and two
parameters of four bytes each.

On some commands, one or all parameters are ignored.
For UDP, command type and parameters need to be in the same datagram.
Responses to valid commands are always five bytes long, consisting of the returned
command byte and as parameters in the current or updated values. In case of an
invalid command, only one byte with value 0FFh is returned.

8: Updating Firmware
This chapter explains how to obtain and update the unit’s firmware.
Obtaining Firmware
Obtain the most up-to-date firmware and release notes for the unit from the Lantronix
Web site (www.lantronix.com/support/downloads) or by using anonymous FTP
(ftp.lantronix.com/pub).
Reloading Firmware
There are several ways to update the unit's internal operational code (*.ROM): using
DeviceInstaller (the preferred way), TFTP, or serial port 1. You can also update the
unit's internal Web interface (*.cob) via TFTP or DeviceInstaller.
Here are typical names for those files. Check the Lantronix Web site for the latest
versions and release notes.
Table 8-1. Firmware Files
ROM File
COB (Web-Manager)
mpt_6502.rom gen_mpt_webm_1602.cob
Please refer to the DeviceInstaller online Help for information about reloading
firmware using DeviceInstaller. The other methods are discussed below.
Using TFTP: Graphical User Interface
To download new firmware from a computer:
1. Use a TFTP client to put a binary file to the unit (*.ROM to upgrade the unit's
internal operational code and *.COB to upgrade its internal Web interface).
Note: TFTP requires the .rom (binary) version of the unit's internal
operational code.
2. In the TFTP server field, enter the IP address of the unit being upgraded.
3. Select Upload operation and Binary format.
4. Enter the full path of the firmware file in the Local file name field.
5. In the Remote file name field, enter the current internal operational code or
WEB1 to WEB19 for the internal Web interface.
MatchPort User Guide 84
8: Updating Firmware
6. Click the Upload Now button to transfer the file to the unit. The unit performs a
power reset after the firmware has been loaded and stored.
Using TFTP: Command Line Interface
To download new firmware from a computer, enter the following from a TFTP
command line interface:
tftp –i <ip address> put <local filename> <destination
file name>
The following examples demonstrate the TFTP command sequence to download the
.rom file, the .fwx file, and the .cob file:
tftp –i 192.168.1.111 put mpt_6502.rom W8
tftp –i 192.168.1.111 put gen_mpt_webm_1602.cob WEB1
Recovering the Firmware Using the Serial Port
If for some reason the firmware is damaged, you can recover the firmware file by
using serial port 1 to download the *.ROM file.
Note: See also Recovering Firmware in the DeviceInstaller User Guide.
1. Start DeviceInstaller.
2. From the Tools menu, select Advanced/Recover Firmware. The Recover
Firmware window displays.
3. Enter the com port on your PC and the location of the firmware file. Make sure
Device Model indicates either MatchPort b/g or MatchPort NR.
4. Click OK to download the file.
MatchPort User Guide 85
9: Wireless Bridging (MatchPort b/g Only)
Bridging allows a host, connected on the MatchPort’s wired Ethernet interface, to be
accessible over the wireless network (via the MatchPort).
To initialize the bridging feature:
1. Configure the MatchPort’s wireless settings. See WLAN Settings.
2. Enable bridging in Setup Mode. See Network Mode.
3. Set up the wired host connected to the MatchPort’s Ethernet port.
Once in bridging mode, the services on the MatchPort are available only through
the wired interface.
To configure the MatchPort using the wired Ethernet interface when in bridging
mode:
1. If a device is connected to the MatchPort's Ethernet port, disconnect it and
connect a PC for configuring the MatchPort.
2. Use a utility such as DeviceInstaller to locate the MatchPort’s MAC address and
IP address. This utility must use the Lantronix access protocol to query the
MatchPort. (See 3: Using DeviceInstaller.)
3. Set up the PC's Ethernet port for AutoIP or assign a static IP address in the same
range as the MatchPort.
4. Use the MatchPort’s Web-Manager (see 4: Configuration Using Web-Manager)
or Telnet to port 9999 to configure the MatchPort.
Note: Telneting to the MatchPort accesses Setup Mode. The procedure
for using Setup Mode from the Ethernet port is the same as for using the
setup port.
5. Disconnect the PC and reconnect the original device to the MatchPort's Ethernet
port.
MatchPort User Guide 86
10: Troubleshooting
This chapter discusses how you can diagnose and fix errors quickly without having to
contact a dealer or Lantronix. The MatchPort’s diagnostic LEDs indicate the unit’s
status. It helps to connect a terminal to the serial port while diagnosing an error to
view summary messages that may display. When troubleshooting, always ensure
that the physical connections (power cable, network cable, and serial cable) are
secure.
Note: Some unexplained errors might be caused by duplicate IP addresses on the
network. Make sure that your unit's IP address is unique.
When troubleshooting the following problems, make sure that the MatchPort is
powered up. Confirm that you are using a good network connection.

Problems and Error Messages
Problem/Message
Reason
Solution
When you issue the ARP –S
command in Windows, The
ARP entry addition failed: 5
message displays.
Your currently logged-in user
does not have the right to use
this command on this PC.
Have someone from your IT
department log you in with sufficient
rights.
When you attempt to assign an
IP address to the unit by the
ARP method and Telnet to the
device server through port 1,
the connection fails.
When you Telnet to port 1 on
the device server, you are only
assigning a temporary IP
address. When you Telnet into
port 9999 and do not press
Enter quickly, the device
server reboots, causing it to
lose the IP address.
Telnet back to Port 1. Wait for it to
fail, then Telnet to port 9999 again.
Make sure you press Enter within 5
seconds.
Cannot establish an
Infrastructure network
connection to the MatchPort.
Network Name (SSID) in the
MatchPort is not set or does
not match the Access Point
(AP).
Verify Network Name (SSID) for the
MatchPort and AP are the same.
These are case-sensitive.
The AP has WEP encryption
enabled and the MatchPort
does not or WEP
authentication type does not
match the AP.
Enable WEP encryption in
MatchPort. Set encryption key and
authentication type to match the AP.
Ensure the key is in HEX notation in
both the AP and the MatchPort.
When you Telnet to port 9999,
the
Press Enter to go into Setup
Mode message displays.
However, nothing happens
when you press Enter, or your
connection is closed.
You did not press Enter
quickly enough. You only have
5 seconds to press Enter
before the connection is
closed.
Telnet to port 9999 again, but press
Enter as soon as you see the Press
Enter to go into Setup Mode
message.
When you Telnet to port 1 to
assign an IP address to the
device server, the Telnet
window does not respond for a
long time.
You may have entered the
Ethernet address incorrectly
with the ARP command.
Confirm that the Ethernet address
that you entered with the ARP
command is correct. The Ethernet
address may only include numbers
0-9 and letters A-F. In Windows and
usually in Unix, the segments of the
Ethernet address are separated by
dashes. In some forms of Unix, the
Ethernet address is segmented with
colons.
The IP address you are trying
to assign is not on your logical
subnet.
Confirm that your PC has an IP
address and that it is in the same
logical subnet that you are trying to
assign to the device server.

10: Troubleshooting
Problem/Message
Reason
Solution
The device server may not be
plugged into the network
properly.
Make sure that the Link LED is lit. If
the Link LED is not lit, then the
device server is not properly
plugged into the network.
When you try to assign an IP
with DeviceInstaller, you get the
following message:
No response from device!
Verify the IP, Hardware
Address and Network Class.
Please try again.
The cause is most likely one of
the following:
The Hardware address you
specified is incorrect.
The IP address you are trying
to assign is not a valid IP for
your logical subnet.
You did not choose the correct
subnet mask.
Double-check the parameters that
you specified.
Note: You cannot assign an IP
address to a device server through
a router.
The device server is not
communicating with the serial
device to which it is attached.
The most likely reason is the
wrong serial settings were
chosen.
The serial settings for the serial
device and the device server must
match. The default serial settings for
the device server are RS-232, 9600
baud, 8 character bits, no parity, 1
stop bit, no flow control.
When you try to enter the setup
mode on the device server
through the serial port, you get
no response.
The issue is most likely
something covered in the
previous problem, or possibly,
you have Caps Lock on.
Double-check everything in the
problem above. Confirm that Caps
Lock is not on.
You can ping the device server,
but not Telnet to the device
server on port 9999.
There may be an IP address
conflict on your network
You are not Telneting to port
9999.
The Telnet configuration port
(9999) is disabled within the
device server security settings.
Turn the device server off and then
issue the following commands at the
DOS prompt of your computer:
ARP -D X.X.X.X (X.X.X.X is the IP
of the device server).
PING X.X.X.X (X.X.X.X is the IP of
the device server).
If you get a response, then there is
a duplicate IP address on the
network. If you do not get a
response, use the serial port to
verify that Telnet is not disabled.

Problem/Message
Reason
Solution
The device server appears to
be set up correctly, but you are
not communicating with your
device attached to the device
server across the network.
If you are sure that the serial
port setting is correct, then you
may not be connecting to the
correct socket of the device
server.
Another possibility is that the
device server is not set up
correctly to make a good
socket connection to the
network.
You can check to see whether there
is a socket connection to or from the
device server by checking the state
of CP1, if it has been configured for
LED1 functionality.
If the state of CP1 is blinking
consistently, or is completely off,
then there is a good socket
connection.
If the state of CP1 is low, use the
Connect Mode option C0 for making
a connection to the device server
from the network. Use Connect
Mode option C1 or C5 for a
connection to the network from the
device server. See the full list of
Connect Mode options in
Connect Mode.
When connecting to the Web-
Manager within the device
server, the No Connection With
The Device Server message
displays.
Your computer is not able to
connect to port 30718 (77FEh)
on the device server.
Make sure that port 30718 (77FEh)
is not blocked with any router that
you are using on the network. Also,
make sure that port 77FEh is not
disabled within the Security settings
of the device server.
