Operating modes and reset
From LORIX One - Wiki
Gateway start and reset
The gateway automatically boots when connected to a power supply through passive PoE on the Ethernet cable. After start-up, the status LED should blink briefly and turn off. Once the Linux OS starts, the status LED will start blinking in “heartbeat” mode.
The reset button can be used to:
- reset normally the gateway and start in normal operating mode
- restore the gateway close to its original factory settings
- enter in programming mode.
To press the button, use a thin tool such as a paper clip. Upon release, the status LED will briefly flash and then stop to signal the reset action.
Press briefly, for less than 1 second. The blue LED will briefly blink upon release
Press and hold for several seconds. The blue LED will briefly blink after the delay specified below
A short flash of the blue LED
- Press shortly on the reset button
- The status LED will flash upon release and the gateway will reboot
The factory reset procedure can be used to reset the initial default configuration and thus restore the device to its original settings. This procedure is useful to solve a network misconfiguration or to recover a forgotten password.
The factory reset does not reset the device to its original factory settings. It does not perform a complete restoration and some issues cannot be solved. A complete factory reset can be done following the procedure described on the NAND Programming page of the wiki.
- Wait at least 1 second after another reset pressure
- Long-press for at least 10 seconds
- After the LED starts blinking, release the reset button
The gateway will boot in factory reset mode. When Linux has started, a script will copy the default files.
Entering programming mode
To enter programming mode, you have to press shortly 3 times on the reset button and keep pressed the third time for at least 3 seconds (until the LED status flashes):
The device will then restart and stay in programming mode until the next power off or reset.
Check with your system tools
This section will help you identify in which mode your device is.
Normal operation mode
When powered, the device will start the LORos system. Once started, you will be able to access it through SSH. At this time, the device "Status" LED will be blinking shortly two or three times every 2 seconds. Your device is typically represented in the Windows "Device Manager" under a serial port called "ELMO GMAS" (this name may vary depending the drivers installed on your computer):
This normal operating mode is not what we want for device programming.
If you successfully entered programming mode, the "Status" LED will not blink anymore at all. Your device is typically represented in the Windows "Device Manager" under a serial port called "Bossa Program Port" (this name may vary depending the drivers installed on your computer):
