RouteMaster: Connection Settings

After adding a physical router to RouteMaster, you must specify the connection parameters

From the Protocol dropdown, select the protocol required to connect to the router. Your router’s documentation will have information about available protocols and how to configure the router to accept them. RouteMaster can control routers using the protocols shown in Appendix 1

Further options will be displayed, depending on the protocol selected. The most common ones are

  • TCP/IP address and port number. The Default button will select the most commonly used port for the protocol, but you should check this with your router’s documentation.
  • COM Port settings. If your router requires an RS-422/232 connection, you can specify the settings here. All COM ports installed in Windows will be available, including USB and Ethernet-based COM ports.
