When updating your BASrouterLX firmware, please remember the following:
The downloaded firmware (a TGZ file) can be placed anywhere on your computer hard drive.
The TAR file is used as is by the BASrouterLX - do not untar or rename it.
Note the TAR file location - so that you can browse to it from your unit's "Upload Firmware" page.
Updating will not disturb system and configuration settings - all settings will be retained.
Force username/password change on initial login for SB-327 compliance.
Close extra ports.
Enable/Disable FTP and Telnet via webpage.
Add Block Full-Range Who-Is Broadcast to MS/TP Network feature. This can be used to hide MS/TP devices after they have been added to a head-end. Who-Is requests for a specific device instance will still be passed to the MS/TP network.
You can indicate which IP devices can communicate through the BASrouterLX to the MS/TP network. Generally, any BACnet client, including BDT, can access to any point on any device. The allowlist can control which BACnet/IP clients can discover and read/write points on the MS/TP devices.
When this is enabled you can use MS/TP as a backbone between BASrouterLX routers.
Usually when the BASrouter or BASrouterLX is used the client is on the BACnet/IP network and the servers are on the MS/TP network. When customers have the client on the MS/TP network and servers on BACnet/IP there can sometimes be issues. Enable MS/TP backbone and this will help in those cases.
I-Am Broadcast Control
Some simple MS/TP devices can be overwhelmed by a lot of I-Am traffic. We can block all I-Am traffic to the connected MS/TP network (when enabled).
These features can be configured via the Advanced tab on the BASrouterLX webpage.
