 +===== Broken Perle Bootup =====
 +
 +<​code>​
 +Bootup dump from Admin (RS232) port :

 +Board id   : 4300085R1.0
 +ROM size   : 1 x 1MB
 +RAM size   : 2 x 2MB
 +Num ports  : 8
 +Diag codes : 01  03  04  06  06  06  06  06  06  06  06  06  06  06  06  06  06

 + ​35 ​ 2B  36
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Note: The Diag codes above contains a couple of  '​unprintable'​ chars. The unit always seems to freeze after printing the '​36'​ with the Power LED at solid amber and no other lights visible. Pressing the '​factory reset' button does nothing (held in for 5 secs).
 +
 +
 +===== Trueport =====
 +
 +Trueport drivers install on Windows and create '​virtual'​ comm ports on the Perle box.
 +
 +To allow the Trueport drivers to connect to the Perle box, some commands must be run on the Perle box. 
 +
 +First, the details of the host that will connect need to be specified ...
 +e.g. 'add host hostname 192.168.11.1'​
 +
 +Then each port that is to be used needs to be configured ...
 +
 +e.g. 'set line 1 service silent raw hostname 10000'
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Hookup to a temperature sensor =====
 +
 +Thinking of hooking up a DS1820 temperature kit via the Perle box. This [[http://​www.quasarelectronics.com/​3145.htm|
 +kit]] looks good. However, it seems to source its power directly from the RS232 port. Can the Perle box supply sufficient current? Can't find anything in the Perle documentation re the hardware specs for the ports. ​
