I have a iconnex 700 modem that will not boot to the falcon interface. It possibly has a incorrect option file. How do I go about correcting this so that I can get back into the modem?

You probably need to cat your options file into it.  Can you access it TCP/IP? If not, you are going to need console access.  These procedures are covered in depth in the "Recovering iNFINITI remotes" document that iDirect released.  

Before you get started put the "good opt" on your desktop.  Open it with notepad and Control-A (copy) it entirely.  

From console:


# cd .. <enter> (moves you up one directory to the parent dir)  Be advised, there is a space between cd and ..
# cd /etc/idirect/falcon/ <enter>
# pwd <enter> (confirms your present working directory)
# ls -l <enter> (you will see falcon.opt in the contents)
# cat > falcon.opt <enter>
right click - paste to host
<Enter> once (at the end of the paste)
Control-D (done)
type reboot
 
The unit should come up on the new opt.
