To start using the LinkServer, you first need to create a trial AuthKey. This is done using a DS203.
After upgrading, don't forget to perform Quick Initialization -- press the setup button, release it, and then press it again for 4 seconds.
Perform the following:
|•||Connect the DS203 you want to convert to a Trial AuthKey to the computer, using a cross serial cable. Don't connect the power cable yet.|
|•||Extract the file -- it contains a BIN file (firmware) and a README. Note the location of the BIN file.|
|•||Under Access Mode, select Device Servers attached to the COM port.|
|•|| Now press the SETUP button on the DS203. After pressing the button, connect the power cable.|
|•||The firmware will start transferring over to the DS203, and you will see a progress bar.|
|•|| Once you get a message that the process is done, disconnect the DS203 from the power.|
|•||Power the DS203 again. Wait for a few seconds. Now you have to initialize it by Quick Initialization -- press the setup button, release it, and then press it again for 4 seconds.|
|•||That's it! Don't forget to set an IP address for the AuthKey, and you're ready to move on.|
