BCM 50 remote access

BCM 50 remote access

BCM 50 remote access

I have a question concerning the remote access to the BCM 50.

I have a customer who uses CICS sytems at their retail stores in part because of the ease of remote access and changes (through the IRAD). The main contact at their head office is very Nortel fluent and knows how to program and use NRU.

On the BCM 50, how could remote access be established to a BCM50 since NRU is not an option. The built in modem is an option, but how would you establish a link using Element Manager if you have to call and dial into the unit's modem?

I am familar with remote access to the older BCM 200/400 using ATA2's into the modem, or networking the unit to a VPN server.
How would it work with the new BCM 50 so that remote access could be established?

There are only 2 seasons in Canada, Golf and Snowmobile season.

RE: BCM 50 remote access

After enabling the modem in element manager you just use the IP address supplied for your modem session of and the IP for the BCM will be  You might want to test it first while you are on site.  I heard Nortel has a patch for the modems.

RE: BCM 50 remote access

enable the internal BCM 50 modem. Use standard dial up session into unit, run element manager, log into 50. Once in, you actually use as the IP address and you are set. There is a modem patch from Nortel, which apparently you still need for boxes currently being produced..
