Synergis™ Softwire

Encryption is a channel property in the Synergis™ Appliance Portal. You can enable the encryption or change the encryption password on a SALLIS router by changing the channel configuration in the Synergis™ Appliance Portal.

What you should know

You cannot change the channel settings while adding a lock to an existing channel. After the channel is created, all changes to the channel properties must be made from the channel property page. After encryption is enabled, you cannot disable it by disabling it in the Synergis™ Appliance Portal. You also need to disable the encryption by connecting directly to the router.


  1. Log on to the Synergis™ unit.
  2. Click Configuration > Hardware.
  3. Select the SALTO channel.
  4. Select the Enable encryption option, and enter the AES site key.
  5. Click Save.
