How do I Connect A SmartNode to the Network and import the configuration?

This FAQ explains how to configure your Patton Gateway for the first time by connecting it to the network, discovering it’s IP Address and then configuring the network settings. You will then be able to import the configuration to it. There are 2 ways to log into a Patton Device.

Connecting a Patton to the network using the Patton SmartNode Discovery Tool

Step 1: Connect the device to the network.

Plug in the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port (ETH 0/0).

If you are using a Patton Smartnode that has 2 Ethernet ports (ETH 0/0 and ETH 0/1) be sure to use ETH 0/0 AND NOT ETH 0/1 for configuration. For example, the Patton Smartnode 4960 and 4638 have 2 Ethernet ports.

Step 2: Discover the device
