    Environment:

    • TelnetCE / Wavelink Industrial Browser 6.x and later


    Issue/Question/Problem:

    • I have devices with configuration settings that I want to extract. How do I extract the Telnet settings?

     

    Resolution:

     

    Here are the basic steps:

    1. Setup
    2. Extraction
    3. Restoration
    4. Creating a new WLTNA file

     

    Setup

     

    1. On your computer (not mobile device), install the telnet configuration client for the device your working with (but the type doesn't really matter). I'd recommend just using this basic MC9100 telnet configuration utility for the sake of simplicity: http://www.wavelink.com/download/Downloads.aspx?DownloadFile=17037&returnUrl=/Motorola%20(Symbol)-MC9100-Emulators-downl…
    2. Once installed, verify that you can open it and use it properly
    3. Also, find the directory created for this installation (mine is C:\Program Files (x86)\Wavelink\TelnetCE\MOT_MC9100_CE6)

     

    Extraction

     

    Here are a few ways you could extract the information

    • Avalanche Remote Control
    • USB Cable Connection and Windows Mobile Device Centre (or Activesync)
    • SD or Micro SD Card extraction

     

    Avalanche Remote Control

    1. Remote into device
    2. Click on the File System
    3. Navigate to the following (or similar) file folder on your device: \Application\Avalanche\TN609100
    4. Select all of the files in the folder, right click and select "Copy to PC"
    5. From the Computer, copy the files and paste them into C:\Program Files (x86)\Wavelink\TelnetCE\MOT_MC9100_CE6
    6. You will be prompted to either Copy and Replace or not copy or to copy and rename. I would select "Copy and Replace" (also select this little box on the bottom left for repeating this step for all files)
    7. Now open the C:\Program Files (x86)\Wavelink\TelnetCE\MOT_MC9100_CE6\TelnetConfig.exe application
    8. You should have the exact configuration as you have on the device
    9. MOST IMPORTANT STEP: Export this fully configuration to a wltna file and save it in a location where you will be able to find it again in the future
      1. Click Import/Export
      2. Select Export all settings
      3. Save to a known location

     

     

    USB Cable Connection with Windows Mobile Device Centre or Activesync

     

    1. Connect the device to your machine
    2. In the Windows Mobile Device Center, click 'Connect without setting up device'
    3. Click 'File Management' and open the file system of your device
    4. If you are using the Avalanche Enabler, then:
      • Navigate to the following (or similar) file folder on your device: \Application\Avalanche\TN609100
      • Highlight and Copy all of the files within this folder (CTRL+C)
    5. If you are only using TelnetCE (without the Avalanche Enabler)
      • Navigate to the following (or similar) file folder on your device: \Application\Wavelink\TelnetCE
      • Copy the following files from this folder
        • CERTLIST.PEM
        • Config.tim
        • HostCfg.bin
        • HostCfgs.bin
        • HostDff.bin
        • HostDffs.bin
        • license.bin
        • PersistentVars.bin
        • PROFILES.DAT
        • REFORMAT.BIN
        • RESOURCE.BIN
        • s24cfg.dat
        • SCRIPTS.BIN
        • SSHAUTH.DAT
        • TERMCFG.BIN
        • WEBDATA.BIN
    6. In another window, navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Wavelink\TelnetCE\MOT_MC9100_CE6 (directory from Step 3 of Setup)
    7. Paste the files (CTRL+P)
    8. You will be prompted to either Copy and Replace or not copy or to copy and rename. I would select "Copy and Replace" (also select this little box on the bottom left for repeating this step for all files)
    9. Now open the C:\Program Files (x86)\Wavelink\TelnetCE\MOT_MC9100_CE6\TelnetConfig.exe application
    10. You should have the exact configuration as you have on the device
    11. MOST IMPORTANT STEP: Export this fully configuration to a wltna file and save it in a location where you will be able to find it again in the future
      1. Click Import/Export
      2. Select Export all settings

    SD or Micro SD Card


    1. Insert an SD Card into the device
    2. Navigate to the following (or similar) file folder on your device: \Application\Wavelink\TelnetCE
    3. Copy the following files from this folder to the SD Card
        • CERTLIST.PEM
        • Config.tim
        • HostCfg.bin
        • HostCfgs.bin
        • HostDff.bin
        • HostDffs.bin
        • license.bin
        • PersistentVars.bin
        • PROFILES.DAT
        • REFORMAT.BIN
        • RESOURCE.BIN
        • s24cfg.dat
        • SCRIPTS.BIN
        • SSHAUTH.DAT
        • TERMCFG.BIN
        • WEBDATA.BIN
    4. Safely eject the SD Card from the device
    5. Connect the SD card to your computer
    6. On the SD Card, copy the files from step 3
    7. On the computer, in another window, navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Wavelink\TelnetCE\MOT_MC9100_CE6 (directory from Step 3 of Setup)
    8. Paste the files (CTRL+P)
