Before you can enroll a DDS IP controller on the Synergis™ unit, you must assign a static IP address to its TCP/IP extension board by connecting to it through a serial port.
Make sure you have the following:
Before you begin
- USB-to-Mini-USB cable.
- Four-port RS-485 module (ask your representative of Genetec Inc. if you do not have one).
- Setup program for Tibbo Device Server Toolkit (either tdst-5-09-12-x64.exe or tdst-5-09-12- x86.exe). Ask your representative of Genetec Inc.
- Latest version of Synergis™ Softwire and the Tibbo.sfw plugin. "Check and upgrade the firmware".
The steps and instructions tagged with Hardening are optional, but will protect your system against cyberattacks.
What you should know
- Attach the TCP/IP extension board to the TPL controller.
Connect the L and H connectors (circled in red) on the TCP/IP extension board to the
“-” and “+” connectors respectively of one of the Four-port RS-485 module channels (A, B,
C, or D)..
