NCEs and NAEs are shipped with standard initial values for many of the editable attributes. The following table lists some important initial default configuration values for the NCE25, NAE35, and NAE45 models. Table 2 and Table 3 define some important initial default configuration values for the NAE55 and NAE85 models.

Note: This information does not apply to the NAE45-Lite.
Table 1. NCE25, NAE35, and NAE45 Initial Configuration Values

Attribute/Field Name

NCE25, NAE35, and NAE45 Initial Value

Computer Name

NAExxxxxxxxxxxx or NCExxxxxxxxxxxx, where xxxxxxxxxxxx is the Ethernet MAC address of the device without hyphens. For example, if the Ethernet MAC address is 00-80-66-05-0F-FC, the initial Computer Name is NAE08066050FFC.

DHCP Client

Enabled

Serial Port RS232C A

115,200 baud, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit (115200,8,n,1), Direct Connect IP over Point-to-Point (PTP).

Serial Port RS232C B

115,200 baud, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit (115200,8,n,1)

Site Director

A new network engine is a Site Director by default. If an NCE/NAE is not going to be the Site Director, demote the engine by specifying the Computer Name or IP address of the designated Site Director in this Site Director attribute field.

Note: An NCE25 should not be designated as a Site Director to any other engines than itself.

Table 2. NAE55 Initial Configuration Values

Attribute/Field Name

NAE55 Initial Value

Computer Name

NAExxxxxxxxxxxx, where xxxxxxxxxxxx is the Ethernet MAC address of the device without the hyphens. For example, if the Ethernet MAC address is 00-80-66-05-0F-FC, the initial Computer Name is NAE008066050FFC for NAE55s.

DHCP Client

Enabled

Serial Port A

115,200 baud, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit (115200,8,n,1), Direct Connect IP over Point-to-Point (PTP).

Serial Port B

9600 baud, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit (9600,8,n,1)

Site Director

A new NAE55 is a Site Director by default. If an NAE is not a Site Director, demote the engine by specifying the Computer Name or IP address of the designated Site Director in this Site Director attribute field.

Table 3. NAE85 Initial Configuration Values

Attribute/Field Name

NAE85 Initial Value

Computer Name

NAExxxxxxxxxxxx, where xxxxxxxxxxxx is the Ethernet MAC address of the enabled Ethernet card without the hyphens. For example, if the Ethernet MAC address is 00-1E-EC-6E-5D-32, the initial Computer Name is NAE001EEC6E5D32.

Same as the computer name defined under the system properties of the Windows operating system.

DHCP Client

Enabled

When you commission an NAE85 for an Ethernet LAN that supports Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Domain Name Server (DNS), we recommend that you configure a DHCP reservation for the NAE85 to ensure it always receives the same IP address when its lease expires. This practice prevents address bindings between the NAE85 and other devices from breaking.

Site Director

A new NAE85 is shipped installed as a Site Director. If you do not want the NxE85 to be the Site Director, you must demote it by entering the Computer Name or IP address of the designated Site Director in this Site Director attribute field.
