Configuring aftx25

The LayGO AFT over X.25 client for the PXS is aftx25. The PXS should configured to run aftx25 as the default application. To define this, at the RedBoot prompt enter:

RedBoot> default
Default application: hdlcsrv
RedBoot> default aftx25
Default application: aftx25

Now aftx25 will automatically run when the RedBoot timeout expires.

aftx25 needs the IP address of the file server running Remote File Server to which it should send the files it downloads 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, enter:

RedBoot> ftp
FTP Server:

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, enter:

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