    Server-Pilot Plus Installation Manual

    I.Server-Pilot ---PLUS versionHardware Installation Manual

    Step1 Install DOMDisk On Moduleof Server-Pilot on server

    A Insert DOM of Server-Pilot to IDE0 (IDE Primary) slot on motherboard.

    Remember to put on DOM power cord.

    B If it fails to boot, please set HARD DISKS MODE for DOM in BIOS as

    Normal/CHS MODE.

    Step2Install system hard drive on server:

    Server-Pilot has two options for hard drive installation, selection or



    If you need to use server functions such as Mail Server, FTP Server,

    account managementetc., You will need an additional hard drive.

    When a new hard drive is installed on IDE1 (IDE Secondary) slot,

    Server-Pilot will automatically check if the hard drive is a new hard drive.

    If yes, Server-Pilot will make an inquiry about formatting hard drive and

    a dialog windowFormat Hard Disk [y/n]will pop up. Please note

    that all the data stored in the hard drive will be erased and formatting will

    be conducted if y is selected. In this situation, it takes a longer period of

    time than normal to boot. But it will not need such a formatting operation

    for later boot.


    You may choose not to install hard drive on IDE1. If you only need

    Server-Pilot for logon functions such as IP Sharing, firewalletc., it will

    still work as a good server and all the settings can be saved after boot.

    However, Server-Pilot without hard drive will have limitation on the use

    of certain functions such as adding new usersetc.

    Step3Install network card on server:

    A System default is set to need two network cards. The one close to KeyBoard is the external actual IP (WAN), while the other is internal (LAN) virtual IP.

    B Note that does not insert PCI network card into the last PCI slot. Step4Set environment on main menu of Server-Piloas shown in the Figure



    Figure 1 Server-Pilot Server Setup Menu

    A After booting Server-Pilotuntil still screen appears, press Enter twice

    to get into main setup menu, which only allows network card IP address

    setup, system shut down, system start up and firewall clearance

    operated by up arrow, down arrow, ENTER and numerical keys.

    Other setup will be completed through Server-PilotWEB management


    B When IP address is changed through main menu, it will only take effect

    after conducting Save & Active Network Configuration. Step5Prepare Server-Pilot network environment:

    Server-Pilot network card IP default:

    External (Wan) - eth0211.20.21.148/

    Internal (Lan) - eth1192.168.1.254/

    Please set your company's IP segmentdefault is used for explanation below

    and connect LAN to internal HUB or SWITCH, WAN to the subscribed

    ADSL Router, as shown in the following figure:


    Figure 2 Server-Pilot Network Environment

    Since Server-Pilot default has start-up DHCP function, when the Client

    computer and Server-Pilot connect to the same HUB, it automatically obtains

    IPor through setting same segment IP for Client computer as Server-Pilot,

    connection to Server-Pilot is obtained.

    Step6Client uses browser to logon Server-Pilot WEB management interface:

    Note: Client browser is suggested to use IE 5.0 or above and resolution in


    After entering website, a dialog window will pop up.

    Enter default account name (manager) and password (manager1234) to


Figure 3 Enter account name and password for web management interface

    Step7 Enter registration information: in WEB management interface, select

    preferred language at the lowest place. To ensure your rights and benefits,


    please register with correct information Note: the serial number below is not

    correct. Refer to Server-Pilot warranty for serial number. After pressing

    confirmation button, another reconfirmation screen will show up. After

    reconfirmation, you are ready to enter WEB management interface.

    II. Description for Basic Fubctions and Express Setup:

    The settings to speed up Server-Pilot operation will be described here. For further understanding of each settings, please refer to "III. Description for Each Operational Item".Note: It is suggested to deactivate the setting that is not used. Normally, Server-Pilot has most settings activated.

    I. Client computer to logon network:

     Two methods for logon are provided here: 1. Dynamic ADSL dial-up connection, 2. Fixed IP connection.

    1Dynamic ADSL dial-up connection:

    A Click Basic Setup --> Network Connectionwithin DNS client selection

    menu, enter complete FQDN for server name (host name + domain name;

    if register domain name with TWNIC, use FQDN). Enter DNS server

    location provided by ISPas the example in the following figure:, demo is host name and is domain

    name. Please do not change the first line for host name

    Change the second line to server IP and server FQDN.

    B Click Basic Setup --> Online Resource Sharing --> ADSL Dial-up Network Resource Sharing:

    Please enter the account name and password provided by ISP. Press "save" and then press "restart" ADSL dial-up program. If dial-up is completed, the obtained IP will appear on the webpage (as shown in Figure 7). If dial-up fails, the screen as in Figure 8 shows up. When an IP is obtained, a network interface (PPP0) and the IP status (as in Figure 9) will appear in Basic Setup -->Network Connection.

    C DHCP Server Setup: Click Basic Setup-->DHCP Server. DHCP is

    activated in defaultDeselect LAN1 when no use is needed. Then, click

    right button to cancel the service.For network connection, select and

    press "activate".as shown in Figure 10


    Figure 10 Select DHCP activated

    D Network Card Online Resource Sharingi.e. NAT: default is Press "save" to connect internal virtual IP to

    Internet as in Figure 11.

    Figure 11 Set Network Card for Online Resource Sharing

    2Use Fixed IP:

    A IP at WAN end: basically, it only needs to set ISP provided IP, NetMask

    and Gateway at WAN end (Figure 1) to connect to Router or Hub for real

    IP, then normal connection is completed. At this moment, setup menu

    will show up at Basic Setup-->Network Connection in WEB

    management in Figure 12


    Figure 12 WAN IP andGateway」】

    BClick Basic Setup-->Network Connection: within DNS client selection

    menu, enter complete FQDN (host name + domain name; if register

    domain name with TWNIC, use FQDN). Enter ISP provided DNS

    server location such as the following figure as example:, demo is host name and is domain

    name. Please do not change the first line for host name

    Change the second line to server IP and server FQDN.

    Figure 13 Set Server Name and Externally Inquired DNS

    CThen refer to settings in C and D for the above dynamic ADSL dial-up

    connection, then internally virtual IP segment will be online. II. DNS Server Setup:

     Two methods are available here: 1. Use dynamic ADSL dial-up connection, 2. Use fixed IP connection. Prior to this, settings in Basic Setup-->Network Connection: first

    set server name in DNS client selection menuas in Figure 13, then proceed with the



    1Use dynamic ADSL dial-up connection: in the aspect of dynamic DNS setup

    If Mail Server or Web Server is preferred, apply Domain Name with

    TWNIC, enter domain name and password. After "Save", press "start"if

    previous domain name corresponds to fixed IP, change to dynamic DNS and

    execute. Refer to TWNIC webpage for how to make changes.In Figure 14,

    it is assumed the subscribed FQDN is and the password

    is VirusBuster

    Figure 14 Set DDNS

    2Use fixed IP for connection: Apply domain name and corresponding IP with

    TWNIC . In Server Setup-->domain name server-->DNS Setup, set up your

    DNS as in Figure 15. The obyained FQDN is and the

    corresponding IP is

    Setup Mode: enter FQDN for server name, for corresponding IP, for domain name, FQDN for domain name server. Canonical

    Name can be held off. If you want to rename to, do it in canonical name. If your server also prefers to

    have mail server function, enter FQDN and priority in mail server. After setup,

    restart the domain name server. For further information, refer to the domain

    name server in the following description for each setting.


    Figure 15 Domain Name Server Setup

    III. FTP Server Setup:

    In default, FTP Serve is activated after Server-Pilot IP is completed. If no use is needed for FTP Server, deactivate it in Server Setup-->FTP Server. Then, use FTP tool

    to login this FTP Server.For detailed explanation, refer to the following description about each setting in Server Setup-->FTP Server.
