5 Network configuration

  • If your network has a DHCP server, it can issue an IP address to the brevis.one SMS Gateway. If no DHCP is available, the device will start with the standard IP
  • If you do not know the IP address assigned by the DHCP, you have the option of requesting it via the serial port. For this purpose, connect your PC using a terminal program (e.g. PuTTY) and the port cable with the Gateway
  • The speed of the interface here is 115200 baud (8N1)



  • A text-based interface appears in which the current IP address is shown under the Version menu option. The IP address can be altered as you wish under the Network menu option.



  • If you make the network settings using the serial port, they will only be temporary and will be lost when the Gateway is restarted.
  • Permanent network settings should be made in the web interface.
  • You can now access the web interface via the IP address. Log in here with the user name “admin” and the password “admin”.




6 Licensing



  • After logging into the web interface, you must request a licence for your Gateway. As long as this process has not been completed you will constantly be requested to do so after logging in.
  • For this purpose, please complete the form and press on the Request button.
  • You will then receive a licensing request which you can request through the Servicedesk (https://brevis.one/en/licreq.html)
  • After our licensing team has processed the request, you will receive a licensing file which you should upload at this point to the SMS Gateway
