  • After closing the pop-up window, you will see the newly added device(s) a the top of the device table.

RMS Authentication code

In some cases, while adding the device, you will be provided an authentication code. This code is not related to the device's admin/root password. Code is only used to authorize the device with the associated RMS Company.

  • This authentication code for the provided device must be inserted in the devices RMS configuration.

Note: authentication code can only be inserted on devices with RutOS firmware 07.07.x and above.

  1. In device's WebUI, navigate to Services -> Cloud Solutions -> RMS.
  2. In the field Authentication code, type in the code that was provided to you by RMS while adding the device. If you missed the authentication code during device registration, you can view it in the Device's details page in RMS or by changing table settings in the Devices page to display the Authentication code column.

  • Click the plus (Rms plus symbol.png) symbol to add more than one device.
  • Enable auto crediting checkmark - if checked, a credit will automatically be assigned to the added device (if there are credits available).
  • You can close the pop-up window earlier if you wish.
  • When the status circle turns green, the system will have finished adding the device to RMS.


Locating serial, MAC, IMEI

You can find the serial number, LAN MAC address, IMEI on the device or in the WebUI. For RUTX11 Services → Cloud Solutions → RMS or check for more information RUTX11 RMS page in Cloud Solutions. And for example, for RUT955, go to the System → Administration → RMS or visit RUT955 RMS page in Administration for more information.

Important! Make sure you are using the LAN MAC address when adding a device to RMS.

Adding from file

From CSV File:

  1. Select add from file tab.
  2. Download the demo CSV file (The demo file will change when changing series) on RMS.
  3. Add your device information and prepare the CSV (see section Preparing CSV file for more details).
  4. Select the file type as CSV file, choose Company, select Device series and finally select your CSV file.
  5. When ready, click the Upload button. Keep in mind, adding more than a few hundred devices at once will take some time.

A pop-up indicating the number of new devices that have been added should appear on the screen:

Finishing adding process

After you've added devices on RMS, you'll need to connect them to RMS on the device itself. Navigate to Services -> Cloud solutions -> RMS.

  1. Press Connect to initiate the connection between the device and RMS.
  2. After a few moments you should see the state's status Connected.
  • Note, that connect button after successful connection will change to Unregister, meaning that it is now fully registered in RMS.


Preparing CSV file

You can download an example file for RUT/TCR/TAP devices from here and for TRB devices from here. Or you can prepare the CSV file for your list of devices manually. The list must be comprised of devices' LAN MAC addresses, (IMEIs for TRB) Serial numbers, Name and Password columns. You must save it as a CSV file. You can create/edit CSV files with programs like Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice Calc, or a simple text editor like Notepad, which we'll use for this example.

Create a new text file and set the order of device parameters in the first line. For example:


Single entry for single device consists of the device's LAN MAC address (or IMEI), serial number and password separated by commas (,). Each line should contain information about a single device (see example below).



  • Do not forget to save your file as *.csv.
  • If you are editing the file with Notepad. Click the "Save As" option. Then next to "Save as type", choose "All Files" and add the .csv extension next to the file name.
  • If you're using Linux, you can add the same extension to the file name after saving the file the regular way).

Actions using CSV files

CSV (Comma Separated Values) is a simple file format used to store tabular data. This file must contain a serial number / MAC address (both Serial number and MAC address can be used interchangeably but not simultaneously), and a parameter you're configuring, all separated by a separation symbol. Each device must be in a separate line.

Setting device location from file

Here you need to provide the device's serial number / MAC address and location coordinates.


Changing device name from file

Here you need to provide the device's serial number / MAC address, name, and description.
