How to: Remote reboot MTS-5800
Solution Steps
Release 3.2 supports now the telnet commands to reboot the unit.


To reboot the MTS-5800 follow this step-by-step procedure:
  • Open the DOS box
  • Type: telnet <ipaddress> 8000
  • *rem
  • SYST:REBoot
You will see the IP address (for example: telnet 8000) in the DOS Box
The entry of *rem  and SYST:REBoot is hidden and not displayed.


In PUTTY open a RAW connection to port 8000, like in the Remote Control Command guide. Using Putty you'll see the entered commands on the screen
