How to access embedded content for testing
How to upload new content
How to update the operating system
The MOB-IP-SIM includes FTP and HTTP content servers to which custom content may be uploaded. The operating system of the MOB-IP-SIM may also, if required, be updated by FTP.
The user has complete read/write access to the embedded FTP server. The user account is accessible with a user name of test and password of ftp. To view the files using a web browser, ftp to the simulator using the format ftp://test:ftp@ipaddress/. The server ships with the following five binary test files:
200k 204800 bytes of random data
200k10 200000 bytes of random data
50k 51200 bytes of random data
50k10 50000 bytes of random data
MD5.txt MD5 checksums of the above four files
You can install more files with any standard FTP client. To update the operating system, FTP the binary file into the root directory of the MOB-IP-SIM, naming it upgrade.bin. After the transfer is complete, click on the Restart button at the bottom of the Configuration menu. The ERROR LED will blink once, then remain on during the the reset process, which will take five to ten minutes following the firmware upload. Normal operation will be possible when the ERROR light has gone off.
The embedded HTTP server reads the following files or directories from the web directory that is also accessible by FTP:
index.html: The front page for the MOB-IP-SIM
mobipdemo.htm : The menu page for the demo files
mobipdemo_files : Directory for the demo files
config: Directory for the built-in configuration forms
logs: MOB-IP-SIM generated logs
docs: Directory for the embedded documentation
Of the above HTML files, only the index.html file is modifiable by the user, though custom HTML pages may be installed to provide content for mobile access testing. To view the files using a web browser, ftp to the simulator using the format ftp://test:ftp@ipaddress/web/.
