When you first get your APC 7900, you won’t be able to talk to it. Here is how I configured mine.

Assign an IP adress to the APC 7900

To assign an IP address to an APC 7900:

# arp -s 10.0.0.128 00:C0:B7:78:8A:7E
# ping -s 113 10.0.0.128
PING 10.0.0.128 (10.0.0.128): 113 data bytes
121 bytes from 10.0.0.128: icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=91.755 ms
121 bytes from 10.0.0.128: icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=4.165 ms
121 bytes from 10.0.0.128: icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=3.304 ms
^C
--- 10.55.0.128 ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 3.304/33.075/91.755/41.495 ms
#

Telnet to to the APC 7900

Then you can telnet in, the password is apc.

$ telnet 10.0.0.128
Trying 10.0.0.128...
Connected to 10.0.0.128.
Escape character is '^]'.

User Name : apc
