First-time configuration of ME/Wi-ME over serial port ?


One question,
is there any way to do first-time configuration via the serial port and not the network side ?
We thought “RCI over serial” would be the perfect way, but there is just one problem: In factory defaults it is disabled.

Can you tell me any reason for that glitch ? Disabling “RCI over serial” by default makes this totally unusable as an option for first-time configuration, and who today needs the dsr line for the serial port for anything?
If you think the standard dsr line function is so important that “RCI over serial” has to be disabled by default, why didn’t you designate another pin for that option ? :frowning:

How do you other people configure your Wi-MEs? Doing the configuration by hand over an open unsecured WLAN airport ist not really an option…
