Synergis™ Softwire 10.11

Encryption is a channel property in Synergis™ Appliance Portal. You can enable the encryption or change the encryption password on a SALLIS router by changing the channel configuration on 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. Once encryption is enabled, you cannot disable it simply by disabling it in Synergis™ Appliance Portal. You’ll also need to disable the encryption by connecting directly to the router.


  1. Log on to the Synergis™ unit.
