Hi everybody,

I have one problem which needs to be sorted out as soon as possible.

I once used an option file to configure a 3100 series idirect modem, the option file had a model number as 5100, when i inserted the option file and reset the modem, it did get locked.

Am now stuck, How can I overcome this problem? I am using the windows platofrm.

Please help me out of this as soon as possible.

Thanking you in advance.

With Best Regards,

Sushil Pandey

Follow the steps

1. Connect to your box via console and run your hyperterminal on your PC/laptop.
2. You will ask to insert the username & password, the default are iDirect login : root, password : iDirect.
3. To prevent your box reset you need to stop the falcon monitor service using this command : service idirect_falcon stop.
4. Now change your directory to /etc/idirect/falcon using this command : cd /etc/idirect/falcon, you will see the OPT file falcon.opt on this directory by this command : ls -l.
5. Your next step is delete this file using this command : rm falcon.opt.
6. Open your new OPT file from your provider using notepad, copy all content on this file.
7. Back to your hyperterminal then put this command : cat > falcon.opt, then press enter, next paste and press ^D.
8. Now your box has new OPT file, then restart your box. login using default username & passowrd.
9. When you already in, put this command : telnet 0, if you are success update your OPT, you’ll asking to login again, the default user & pass are : user : admin; pass : P@55w0rd!. If doesn’t work, ask to your provider what the user & pass are ?.
