The Config tab offers three general levels of configuration: global, connections, and interface. To configure at the global level, click the GLOBAL button to expand the Settings button (if it has not already been expanded). To configure connections, click the CONNECTIONS button to expand the list of connections, and then choose the connection. To configure an interface, click the INTERFACE button to expand the list of interfaces, and then choose the interface.
The only global setting available for a cloud is its display name.
The TV Settings sub-panel allows you to manage TV images that would be displayed on a connected TV end device. To add a TV image, click the Browse button and select an image. It is recommended that you use .PNG graphics. Afterwards, click the Add button to add the image to the list of TV images. To remove a TV image, select the TV image from the list and click the Remove button.
You can use the Frame Relay sub-panel to establish Frame Relay connections between sub-links on the ports of the cloud. Configure DLCIs on the serial interfaces first, explained in a later section. Then, from the left Port drop down menu, choose a port and in the Sublink drop down menu, one of its sub-links. Then from the right Port drop down menu, choose another port and one of its sub-links. Click the Add button to make a connection between those two sub-links. The connection will now appear on the list. You can remove a connection from the list with the Remove button.
You can also use the DSL or Cable sub-panel to establish connections between modem ports (for DSL) or coaxial ports (for Cable) on the cloud to the Ethernet ports on the cloud. To establish a DSL connection, choose the appropriate modem port on the left-side drop down menu and on the right-side drop down menu choose an Ethernet port, which has its Provider Network set to DSL. Click the Add button to make the connection. You can remove a connection from the list with the Remove button. To establish a Cable connection, choose the appropriate coaxial port on the left-side drop down menu and on the right-side choose an Ethernet port which has its Provider Network set to Cable.
Clouds can support four interface types: modem, Ethernet, coaxial, and serial. For a modem port, you can set a Phone Number, which another device with a modem port can dial. For an Ethernet port, you can set the Provider Network to either DSL or Cable. For a coaxial port, there are no settings to configure. For a serial port, you can toggle its Port Status, choose an LMI (ANSI, Cisco, or Q933a), and assign DLCIs to the interface. To add a DLCI, enter an identifying number and a name for it, and then click the Add button to add it to the list. You can remove a DLCI from the port with the Remove button.
