Configuring ftam

The LayGO FTAM collector for the PXS is ftam. The PXS should configured to run ftam as the default application. To define this, at the RedBoot prompt enter:

RedBoot> default
Default application: hdlcsrv
RedBoot> default ftam
Default application: ftam

Now ftam will automatically run when the RedBoot timeout expires.

ftam needs the IP address of the file server running Remote File Server to which it should send the files it donwloads from the switch. To set the file server, use the RedBoot ftp command. For instance, if the IP address of the remote file server is 192.168.250.3, enter:

RedBoot> ftp 192.168.250.3
FTP Server: 192.168.250.3

You should also enable remote logging by setting the address of a server running the remote log server. For instance, if the IP address of the remote log server is also 192.168.250.3, enter:

RedBoot> log 192.168.250.3
Log Server: 192.168.250.3
RedBoot> logging enable
Logging: enabled
