For optimal performance, the Otis Compass plugin should be hosted on an expansion server with two network interface cards. Not following the recommended configuration can have an adverse effect on all parts of Security Center.
The server that hosts the plugin role must meet the recommended server specifications as described in the system requirements. It must also be running a compatible version of Security Center.
Set up the Otis Compass plugin on an expansion server
The CompassPlus™ network should be isolated from the Security Center network to prevent disruptions to the elevator network.
The network ranges used by Security Center should not overlap with network ranges used by the CompassPlus™ system. For more information on the network ranges used by the CompassPlus™ system, contact technical representative from Otis.
Configuring your network interface cards (NIC)
Your expansion server must be configured with two network interface cards.
|NIC 1||NIC 2|
|Communicates with the CompassPlus™
Connects to the network switch provided by Otis.
|Communicates with the Security Center network.|
|Fixed local IP address: 192.168.50.250||Static IP address: Configured manually
NOTE: If your main directory server resides on another subnet, set up persistent routes so that the servers can communicate with each other.
|Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0||Subnet mask: Same as your Security Center main directory server.|
|Gateway address: 192.168.50.254
If a gateway IP address is not used, persistent routes must be created for the CompassPlus™ network subnets that are used by the integration. Contact your Otis representative for more information about the network ranges used by your system.
|Gateway address: None|
