Air-Frame is configured using a ZyTrax enterprise SNMP MIB. The MIB allows read access using a community value of 'public'. Write access requires a unique 'community value' (password). All SNMP access may be further controlled using the Access List feature.
The standard MIB-II values for TCP, IP, UDP, ICMP and the Interface group can be read via SNMP.
Telnet is supported for read only purposes and has 16 pages of diagnostic and status information available including interface stats, IP. UDP, TCP, ICMP stats, Link connection status, monitor of traffic going into and out of the router (by IP source and destination address) etc.
ZYTRAX Routers may be reset locally or remotely using either TCP, UDP (via the MIB) or ICMP (all methods subject to Access Controls).
All Router management and diagnostic features may be run remotely or locally. When using remote management services with a thin Proxy service a Port Map must be defined to enable the required access methods.
Air-Frame supports a LIVE MIB service. When a SNMP enterprise MIB parameter is changed the configuration will be updated in 'real-time' without service interruption.
The GoodGuys list (a.k.a an Access List) defines those Hosts (or Host ranges) that are permitted access to Router features. The access list may be further defined to allow access to any or any combination of features (Configuration, Monitoring and Reset/Load). In low security environments a Telnet password is used to deter and stop accidental access to the router.
ZYTRAX Routers maintain two copies of the application in FLASH. One of these copies is LIVE (being used), the other is available to be upgraded. 'Dual Booting' ensures that it is impossible to lose a viable application even if power fails during an application update cycle. Many competing products either die under these circumstances or require local serial connection access which makes a mockery of remote access.
ZYTRAX Rourers maintain two copies of the application in FLASH. One these copies is LIVE (being used), the other is available to be upgraded. This method allows an application upgrade to be treated as normal data transmission and without interrupting normal routing functions. To use the new application the router must be reset. A special MIB parameter is used to define the time (in seconds) after which the router will reset. Thus a new application can be loaded during the day and the router configured to reset at 2 AM in the morning.
ZYTRAX Routers maintain two copies of the application in FLASH. When a new application is loaded it goes onto 'probation' mode. If the new application fails before it has exceeded the time that the previous version was running for, the router reverts to the previous application after the reset. This ensures that the most reliable version of the application is always active. This feature can be overridden using a MIB parameter if required.
