Someone from Axel is on this forum so i am sure they will point you in the right direction. Also maybe this post should be moved to this area? - Thin Client and Virtual Machines
I've bought several second hand Axel M75C terminals. They are excellent units, like the M70w but in a metal casing with more ports and extra features.
However, I cannot access two of the units. They both try to connect to a server at 188.8.131.52:23. <Ctrl><Alt><Esc> doesn't get me to the interactive set-up and they don't appear in AxRM.
Can I rescue these units?
Just so you know i know that you can do this, but the key sequence has gone out my mind.. contact axel on the forums as FN said he will be able to tell you the key sequence you need matey.
I suspect these units have been set up for As400 connection, ie with an as400 keyboard (as400 kb don't have an escape key so have a different sequence to enter setup)
On the asumption you don't have an As400 keyboard handy there are two solutions.
1) download our free remote management AxrM s/w from www.axel.com and remote connect the device from your PC and set kb to PS/2 or set to factory defaults
2) Press a special key sequence which will toggle the keyboard to the other type, which is:
cont alt shift k
For those that are interested, the M75 and the newer, faster M85 are semi ruggedised, in metal case, have parallel/serial/USB/PS2 ports and internal PSU. They are covered by a 5 year warranty and tend to be used in manufacturing, warehouses, retail etc applications. They also have a wifi option...
You can download the latest f/w from our website and install (takes about 30 seconds) and these devices will be as good as new and should give you years of pleasure !
Yeh, that was kinda my point.
You got the wrong end of stick, I was supporting Axel with a little sarcasm. Sorry it was wasted.
