Can I Hook a Laptop to....

Can I Hook a Laptop to....

Can I Hook a Laptop to....

Hey all,

      Can I hook up a laptop to a NEAX 2000IVS to do system administration changes and adds?? Please help. I really need this info.

RE: Can I Hook a Laptop to....

Yes you can - you need to set up the port to it - i.e. either by the serial port or dialing in on a modem line.

RE: Can I Hook a Laptop to....

You need a proprietory nec cable for a direct connection.  You are supposed to use matworx but you can use procomm or hyperterminal.  My suggestion would be to set up the modem on the MP so you can dial into the switch without the serial cable.

RE: Can I Hook a Laptop to....

I'm not a PBX guy but there is also a built in modem on the NEAX and it's ext 299? I think??

RE: Can I Hook a Laptop to....

If you tell me how you want to dial in to the modem (DID,vmail transfer, Dit, or just have someone transfer you in.) I will post back the instructions on how to set up modem.  And also what type of phones do you have to program from.

RE: Can I Hook a Laptop to....

I would like this info for to dial in please...we have a few sites to setup.
Ty :)

RE: Can I Hook a Laptop to....

On Neax 2000 an extension number has to be set in Cmd40
 YY=10 Port=1

The Station Number must be a number that has not been assigned by Cmd 10 or 11.

The defaults should already be set for 1200 N 8 1

If you need to program this from a phone the sequence  to get into programming is: Handset on hook, pres Cnf,Trf *
then Cnf, Trf #.
That will get you into programming:
You need the Documentation as there are many other areas that may need to be turned on, and it is to long for this post.


RE: Can I Hook a Laptop to....

On an NEC 2000 IVS (Not IVS2) you simply need a 9 pin Female to 25 pin male serial canble and a null modem adapter. You'll notice on the bottom shelf (PIM0) there is a 25 pin connection directly above the batteries, below the card slots, thats where it plugs into, no special cables, though a MAT CA-x (Where x=rev level) is much easier and plugs directly into the CPxx card.  - as for the modem connection the above post is accurate.
