    • Manual: Use this option to manually enter an IP address or hostname.
  2. Choose from one of the following:
    • Use IP Address: Use the device IP address as a connection parameter.
    • Host name: Use the device hostname as a connection parameter.
    Note: For further information, refer to the SNC Commissioning Guide (LIT-12013295).

For all modes, the following connection parameters are required:

  • Host Name/IP Address: The device host name or IP Address.
  • User Name: Credentials to log into the site.
  • Password: Credentials to log into the site.
  • Supervisory Device: The supervisory device to use for the Supervisor Passthru connection.
  • Trunk: The trunk to use for the Supervisor Passthru connection.
Note: To use the Supervisor Passthru connection, you do not need to launch the tool through the supervisory device configuration tool or user interface, or have the supervisory device configuration tool installed. When you launch the tool from the supervisory device configuration tool, the supervisory device connection information is not automatically populated in the tool.
Bluetooth: Specify the COM port and baud rate to use.
MAP 4.2+ / BACnet Router: Use to specify the following:
  • IP address and UDP port of the router.
  • Network number of the MS/TP trunk (1-65,534).

    Do not use 1001 for the MS/TP Network Number. The MS/TP Network Number 1001 is reserved for Johnson Controls IP network connections.

  • An available Ethernet network interface adapter to use.

    If you select an available Ethernet network interface, all IP traffic intended for the MAP 4.2+/ BACnet Router travels through this interface.

When you first open the wizard, the default connection parameters for connecting to a MAP Gateway at version 4.2 are automatically displayed. If the connection parameters are modified, the values are stored in the wizard for future use. To restore the connection parameters to the default values, click the MAP 4.2 Default button.

For further information about the MAP and common troubleshooting issues, refer to the Mobile Access Portal Gateway User's Guide (LIT-12011999).

ZigBee: Specify the personal area network (PAN) Offset.
Direct Ethernet: Specify the UDP port of the device and an available network interface. Select a network interface that is connected to the same subnet as the IP controllers to which you want to connect.
