How do I connect remotely to the WARP Pager?

The WARP Pager supports SSH connectivity and also has a HTTP server running on the unit.

To connect via SSH simply use a common terminal emulator such as Putty.exe then login with username 'pager' and password 'pikapika'.

To connect to the web server simply enter the IP address of the WARP Pager into a common web browser such Internet Explorer or Firefox.

The login username is 'pager' and the default password is 'pikapika'.

In both cases you will be placed in the WARP Pagers log file directory. There will be a directory called 'current' which will have the latest pager.log file as well as the configuration files retrieved from the (T)FTP server or USB key.

A rotational log histroy that includes the last five reboots will be present in the following directory structure: current, current-1,.....current-5.
