Software Interface




A remote user connects to the SLB via a secure web browser (HTTPS/SSL), Secure Shell (SSH), or Telnet session. If the network is unavailable, users dial in to the modem. Users are greeted with a Quick Setup screen pre-loaded with default network settings. Once the settings are applied, we get down to work managing the SLB through the JavaScript web interface.


The block diagram in the upper right provides a visualization of each port and its current state, along with the network connections, modem and USB ports. Users can select each port for individual configuration.


The network tab has all of the necessary settings to manage the network setting, along with IP Filters, Routing, and VPN options in additional subcategories.




The Services tab has a plethora of settings to manage SSH/Telnet/logging, SNMP (for notifications), NFS/CIFS, the Secure Lantronix Network (Secure Lantronix Managers on the network), Date and Time configuration, and Web Server functionality.




The Authentication tab configures the SLB to use one or more authentication methods, and has numerous subcategory settings to manage various protocols. There is an intense level of granularity in the sub-categories to control the protocols.




The Devices tab controls the device serial port connections, console port, USB port, and power outlets.




The Maintenance tab provides monitoring information, such as the temperature of the unit, and allows for firmware updates. There are also subcategories for viewing the system log, audit logs, and email logs. There is a diagnostics category for self-test routines, monitoring of status/reports, Events, LCD/Keypad, and Banners.




The Quick Setup tab allows configuration of the basic SLB features.
