Setting Up Your Farallon Netopia Router
for Office Online
Connecting to Your Router
In order to configure your router, you must first connect
You have two options: You can telnet to it from another
on your network, or you can connect it to a Mac or PC with
cable and use a standard terminal program to communicate
To do the former, the machine you wish to use must be
to communicate to the router using TCP/IP over your local
network (configuring your LAN is beyond the scope of this
and the help that Northwest Nexus can give you). The
address, if preconfigured by us, will be 10.0.1.1.
If you wish to try the latter, you'll need an appropriate
cable and a terminal emulation program. "Windows
"HyperTerminal" will work under Windows and
Windows 95; on a Macintosh,
a program such as "Zterm" or "Mac Comm
Center" will be fine. Set
the program to use 9600 BPS, 8 data bits, no parity, and 1
bit. Tell the software to connect, and you should be set
