Recommend that you attempt to CAT the options file in it (in Linux).

1. Open your GOOD options file in notepad  (the one you received from the hub operator)
2. Control-A and (right click) Copy ONLY the text portion of the good options file. NOTHING MORE...just the text.  
3. From console (the prompt should look like this - #) type cd .. (be advised there is a single space between cd and ..)  
4. Then type cd /etc/idirect/falcon/ and hit enter (be advised there is a space after cd )
5. type ls -l (you should see a filename falcon.opt which is your options file on the box).  
6. type cat > falcon.opt (there is a space on both sides of > ) Enter.
7. (on the next line) right click and paste in the copied options file (the one you copied in notepad)  
8. Once the options file pastes in, hit the <enter> key once and then Control D (for done).  
9. This should bring you back to the # prompt.  
10. Type reboot to reset the unit.   The unit will come back up on the options file you pasted in, and eth0 should be accessible via the IP you have identified in falcon (for eth0). Put your laptop in the same subnet and connect to the unit.
