Dec 02, 2015 - Author: Sierra Wireless - 1664 Views
MedVaults manufactured by Knox® are used to dispense drugs and to keep a count of what was dispensed. The safe itself features an Ethernet connection which provides the safe's status to remote computers on a network which query for it using the Knox® application.

The safe can be connected to the oMG's Ethernet port to allow data transmission over the Internet to a remote PC.

The ideal configuration is to use a VPN, however if this is not possible, then the following procedure can be used.

The following procedure only works for cell cards with a static IP address.

Configuration

Create a LAN segment using the following steps:

  1. Open the LCI on the oMG.
  2. Navigate to LAN->LAN Segments and click Add New LAN Segment.
  3. Enter a descriptive name into the Friendly Name field.
  4. Set the IP Address to 172.22.1.1, the Network Mask to 255.255.255.0 and set both the DHCP Low Address and DHCP High Address 172.22.1.43.
  5. Ensure that Enable Subnet Management Access is enabled.
  6. Click Save to save the LAN segment.


Assign the LAN segment to the Ethernet port using the following steps:

  1. Navigate to LAN->Lan Segments.
  2. Locate the Ethernet port in the list to which the Knox® safe is connected to and select the LAN segment created in the previous steps under the Actions column.
  3. Click Apply Changes to save the change.


Create an Access Granting firewall rule using the following steps:

  1. Navigate to WAN->Links, locate the active WAN device, and click on Networking Rules under the Actions column.
  2. Select Access Granting in the drop down and click Add New Networking Rule.
  3. Enter a descriptive name into the Rule Name field.
  4. Set the Direction to Incoming, the Protocol to TCP, the Destination IP Address to 172.22.1.43, and the Destination Port Range (start and end) to 10001.
  5. Click Save to save the rule.


Note: cell cards must have a static IP address.

Create a Port Forwarding firewall rule using the following steps:

  1. Navigate to WAN->Links, locate the active WAN device, and click on Networking Rules under the Actions column.
  2. Select Port Forwarding in the drop down and click Add New Networking Rule.
  3. Enter a descriptive name into the Rule Name field.
  4. Set the Destination Port Range (start and end) to 10001, the Protocol to TCP/UDP, the Destination IP Address to 172.22.1.43, and the Forward Port Range (start and end) to 10001.
  5. Click Save to save the networking rule.


Remote PC's should now be able to obtain information from the MedVault® connected to the oMG.
