                Preparation :

                1.  Connect the Digi One Single Port by plugging it into the local LAN and connecting the Power Supply.
                2.  The Windows machine you will be setting this up from must be connected on the same network as the Digi One Single Port.

  1. Insert the CD-Rom (it should auto-run).
  2. This will bring up the installation program and detect the operating system (see Figure 1).

                                                                                                                                                                                                     Figure 1
  3. You will need to install the DGRARP Protocol first.
  4. Your operating system should show up in the Operating System dialog box.
  5. Select your Hardware type from the Hardware drop down box.  In this case you would select the Digi One Single Port.
  6. Select DGRARP from the Software drop down box.
  7. Click Install Software (see Figure 2).

                                                                                                                                                                                                       Figure 2
  8. You will now get a pop up screen (see Figure 3).  This is for Windows 9x, but it will be similar in Windows NT, 2000 and XP as well.  
                                                                                            Figure 3

    9.    Select the Run Control Panel and follow the instructions in the pop up screen for adding DGRARP to your protocol list.
           When it asks you where the INF is located you can issue a CTRL+V to paste in the INF file path (that is also shown on the pop up 
           screen for your operating system). See Figure 4.
                                                                                                          Figure 4
  10.    When you are done, click Close.
  11.    Reboot your system.
  12.    The DGRARP Protocol should now be installed on your system.
  13.    To install the Administrator software run the CD installation again, except select Digi Administrator from the Software drop down box
         (see Figure 5).
                                                                                                                                                                                                Figure 5

  14.    Click Install Software. 
15.    You can use all of the defaults UNTIL you get to the following screen (see Figure 6).
                                                                                                                         Figure 6
  16.    If this is the first installation, you will need to pick the second installation set: Install Digi Administrator, DGrarp and RemoteCOM.
           This will install the RARP Service to send IP Addresses to the Digi One Single Port.  All other installations can use the first installation set.
  17.    Click Install.
18.    When it prompts you to reboot, you will want to choose the option to Reboot Now.
  19.    After rebooting start the Digi Administrator by going to Start, Programs, Digi Administrator and select Digi Administrator.
  20.    When Digi Administrator comes up, go to Admin, RARP Server and click Start (see Figure 7).
                                                                                                                                                              Figure 7
  21.   After the service is started go back to Admin, RARP Server and click View.  Here you will see a list of all Digi One Single Ports that can
          be seen (see Figure 8) .
                                                                                                                                                            Figure 8

   22.  Click on the no IP addr. field and enter a valid IP Address and press Enter.
          NOTE: You will need to press enter so the IP Address gets served to the Digi One Single Port.  
          At this point the unit is ready to use with RemoteCOM.
   23.  To configure RemoteCOM, go to RemoteCOM, Add, and select New Com port.
   24.  A list of available com ports will be displayed.  Select a com port (i.e. com3). 
   25.  In the configuration screen enter the IP Address of the Digi One Single Port (see Figure 9).  Click OK.
                                                                                                                                                              Figure 9

    26.  Now click on the RemoteCOM Service button to open it up.  You will need to Stop and Start the Service to make the 
           com port available to your application.  This will activate the com port (see Figure 10).  Now go to RemoteCOM and select
           View/Modify to check the status of the port.  You can now go into Hyperterminal to test the com port (see Hyperterminal Guide).   
           When you connect to the port, the status should change to Status: Connected.  
                                                                                                                                                                Figure 10
   27.  To test the port go to RemoteCom, Monitor (see Figure 11).
                                                                                                                                                           Figure 11

  28.  Choose the com port you want to monitor from the drop down box and choose OK.  You will now be at the monitor screen
         (see Figure 12).                       
                                                                                                                                                            Figure 12

28.  Now go into Hyperterminal and access the com port you have the Digi One Single Port 2217 configured to use.
       At the blank Hyperterminal screen try typing.  You should see the data appear on the Monitor screen (see Figure 13).
       This would indicate that the data is being passed through the port successfully.
