Summary[edit | edit source]

This page is an overview of the Administration section of RUTX11 routers.

The information in this page is updated in accordance with the RUTX_R_00.01.06 firmware version.

General[edit | edit source]

The General section is used to set up some of the router's managerial parameters, such as changing the password. For more information on the General section, refer to figure and table below.

Field Value Description
Router name string; default: RUTX11 The router's model name.
Host name string; default: Teltonika-RUTX11.com The router's hostname. This can be used for communication with other LAN hosts.
Current password string; default: none The router's current password.
New password | Confirm new password string; default: none A new password for the router. The password must be comprised of 8-32 characters, including at least one upper case letter, one lower case letter and one digit.
Synchronous writeon | off; default:offEnables that all changes to the according filesystem are immediately flushed to disk. This will drastically lower the life expectancy of your USB device.
Restore to default -(interactive button) Restores the router to it's default state (factory settings).

Logging[edit | edit source]

The Logging section is used to configure how and where the router stores system log data. The system log is a file that contains information on various system related events and is useful to engineers for troubleshooting the router.

Refer to the figure and table below for information on the router's Logging page.

Field Value Description
System log buffer size integer; default: 64 System log buffer size in kibibytes (KiB).
External system log server ip; default: none IP address of an external server that will be used to store router logs.
External system log server port integer [0..65535]; default: none TCP/UDP port number of the external log server.
External system log server protocol UDP | TCP; default: UDP Communication protocol used by the external log server.
Save log in RAM memory | Flash memory; default: RAM memory Specifies which type of memory to use for storing system logs.

Diagnostics[edit | edit source]

Field Value Description
Method Ping | Traceroute | Nslookup; default: Ping Selects diagnostic method.
  • Ping - sends ICMP requests to the specified address.
  • Traceroute - displays the path that packets have to take in order to reach the specified address.
  • Nslookup - obtains domain name address and IP address mapping information.
Protocol IPv4 | IPv6; default: IPv4 Selects IP address family for diagnostic test.
Address ip | host; default: none IP address or hostname on which the diagnostic test will be performed.

Troubleshoot[edit | edit source]

The Troubleshoot section is used to download various files that contain information used for troubleshooting the router. Refer to the figure and table below for information on the Troubleshoot page.

Field Value Description
System log - (interactive button) Displays the contents of the router's system log file. The system log contains records of various system related events, such as starts/stops of various services, errors, reboots, etc.
Kernel log - (interactive button) Displays the contents of the router's kernel log file. The kernel log contains records of various events related to the processes of the operating system (OS).
Troubleshoot file - (interactive button) Downloads the router's Troubleshoot file. It contains the router's configuration information, logs and some other files. When requesting support, it is recommended to always provide the router's Troubleshoot file to Teltonika engineers for analysis.
TCP dump file - (interactive button) Downloads the router's TCP dump file. TCP dump is a program used to capture packets moving through network interfaces. By default, the router does not store TCP dump information. You must enable TCP dump and save the changes before you can download the file.
Enable TCP dump* off | on; default: off Turns TCP dump packets capture on or off.

* More on TCP dump in the next section.

TCP dump[edit | edit source]


TCP dump is a program used to capture packets moving through network interfaces. By default, the router does not store TCP dump information. You must enable TCP dump and save the changes before you can download the file.

If you enable TCP dump, you will notice additional configuration fields appear. Refer to the figure and table below for realted information.

Select interface network interface; default: br-lan Only captures packets that move through the specified network interface.
Select protocol filter all | icmp | tcp | udp | arp; default: All Only captures packets that match the specified protocol.
Select packets direction IN/OUT | Incoming | Outgoing; default: IN/OUT Only captures packets coming from the specified direction.
Host ip | host; default: none Only captures packets related to the specified host.
Port integer [0..65335]; default: none Only captures packets related to the specified communication port.
Select storage Internal storage | / ; default: Internal storage Specifies where the TCP dump file will be stored.

Access Control[edit | edit source]

The Access Control page is used to manage remote and local access to the router.

Important: turning on remote access leaves the router vulnerable to external attackers. Make sure you use a strong password.

SSH

Root CA[edit | edit source]

The Root CA section is used to add a root CA certificate file to the router. There is a default file already preloaded on the device which will be overwritten by any uploaded file. The certificates must be in .pem format, maximum file size is 300 KB. These certificates are only needed if you want to use HTTPS for your services and the default file should be sufficient in most cases.
