I ask that because s require an upgrade prep in the more current iDS versions. Before you start you will need the following: 1. A client connected to your iDirect unit it is implied that you are in the same subnet of the iDirect unit and you can ping it 2. A version of iSite that matches that of the iDS you intend to upgrade to. The cumulative update and image of the iDS you are upgrading to if you are upgrading to 8.

Launch the Web browser of choice. On the initial login, enter the default name of admin and the password of iDirect. Click Login to complete the login process. Status and monitoring views of real-time modem information and events, Ethernet receive and transmit connections, and IP configuration and information. Remote commissioning tools, including tools for lookup angle calculation, antenna pointing, and cross polarization.
Administration tools for loading new packages and options files. Factory Default Mode restart to reset the Satellite Router to factory default settings. This page provides specific modem information and operating parameters of the X1 Satellite Router. Modem Status, is comprised of these sections: Modem Information — This section provides key identifier information for the X1 Satellite Router.
This information is presented in the Connection, Transmitter, and Receiver sections. Transmitter — This section tracks and displays the total number of Ethernet Frames transmitted by the Satellite Router, the number of Dropped Frames, and the number of Error Frames, seen by the Satellite Router, since the modem was last restarted.
Receiver — This section tracks and displays the total number of Ethernet Frames received by the Satellite Router, the number of Dropped Frames, and the number of Error Frames, since the modem was last restarted.
IP Configuration It provides important configuration information about the network in which the Satellite Router is connected.
Management Interface — In an iDirect network, the Management Interface refers to the hub side of the network. Multicast Groups — Using the Direction to indicate the flow of traffic, and the IP Address of the multicast group, this section lists the persistent Multicast Groups in which the X1 Satellite Router is a member.
Remote Events Page When the remote is in operation, this page logs the events of the X1 Satellite Router, displaying the last 40 events that have occurred. This area, is also a monitoring and troubleshooting tool that is used to aid in resolving problems that may exist with the remote.
With the information provided in this window, an iDirect TAC representative can perform an investigation and analysis of problems with the remote and quickly pinpoint problems.
Given the appropriate values, the look angle calculator determines the Polarization Offset, Azimuth True, and Elevation Actual. Spacecraft Position — the Longitude is entered for the satellite that is being used. Elevation — an Elevation Offset is entered to derive the correct value for Elevation True. The tool itself is a color-coded graphical voltage display that simplifies the task of locking on to the downstream carrier for a specific network.
As the antenna azimuth plane is manipulated in a slow sweeping motion, the graph displays a voltage reading in the range of volts to indicate the signal strength and when the remote is successfully locked onto the correct satellite and outbound carrier.
As the antenna azimuth is moved, the graph will turn red, then yellow, and finally completely green as there is a lock on to the downstream carrier. Cross Polarization Test Page This test page supports the putting up of a modulated or unmodulated continuous wave CW carrier as part of the test. The transmit power adjustment value may also be adjusted downward if the BUC is already saturated and the 1 db adjustment shows no further increase in power.
Modulator — The Cross-Polarization test supports the testing of a remote by transmitting either a modulated or unmodulated carrier at a specific uplink frequency. The modulation should only be switched on after receiving instruction to do so by the Satellite Provider operator.
Admin Pages This page group provides additional tools for assisting installers or technicians with the task of troubleshooting or commissioning of the remote. Tools are included for loading the software Package and Options file to the X1 Satellite Router, as well as a command console tool for invoking a limited set of commands on the X1 remote. File Management Page — is generally used at the Satellite Router location, during a commissioning phase, to load the necessary files to the X1 remote.
The topics in this section describes how these page sections are used, however the Satellite Router Installation and Commissioning Guide must be referenced for complete instructions on performing the installation and commissioning tasks. The X1 Console Page — is a diagnostic and troubleshooting tool to assist with any problems that may arise during the commissioning task, or in any situation where troubleshooting may be required after the X1 remote has been commissioned.
The page is comprised of three areas—the command response window, the top most area just under the Console label; the command line, the blue highlighted area beneath the command response window; and the X1 event message window, the bottom message area of the page. Related posts.

Satellite Equipment From Ground Control Satellite Dishes - Stationary Systems Choosing a satellite dish will be dependent on which satellite you are connecting to, your location, and your transmission speed requirements. Dish sizes range from 1. Depending on your use, dish size and installation location will determine the best size BUC for your satellite dish. Mounting Solutions Fixed satellite dishes are mounted in a variety of ways. Pole Mount, Non-penetrating roof mount no holes are drilled in the roof. Each installation is different and we recommend speaking with us to find your best solution. Installations are performed on-site by our national and international team of satellite installation experts.
