When clicking a button «Reboot», LEDs near CPU at Ethernet ports will blink. A device will reboot. The uptime of a device will be reset to 0d 0h 0m 0s.

2. Using an SNMP v1 protocol through setting OID values using a command Set:






Software reboot of a device when writing the value «1» (an analog of rebooting a device through a web interface).





An immediate forced reboot of a device writing the value «1» (resetting a processor, like when switching a power supply on).

3. Using an SMS command:

NETPING RB20 community_w kkkkk


  • NETPING  is a function word that must be included in an SMS command and helps a device to distinguish commands from other SMS;
  • RB20  is a command code, in this case, a command to reboot a device;
  • community_w – is a password that corresponds to an SNMP community for writing. It is set on the page «SETUP» of a device web interface. It is possible to use Latin letters, digits, a character «_» without quotes and spaces;
  • kkkkk  is a request identifier (a random number from 3 to 9 digits). It is repeated in a response as well to establish a correspondence between a request and a response. It is an auxiliary element of a command. If there is no identifier in a command, there is no identifier in a response either.

Confirming a command execution:

NP DONE RB20 kkkkk

Besides, a log record will appear about receiving a command to reboot a device. A reboot happens 20 seconds after receiving an SMS command by a device.
