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”
