Netshield NLMAINLITE-2U-E Instillation guide

Remote power management and control system that combines intelligent multi point power  distribution, surge protection and load-measurement for IT equipment.

Unpack the units from the packaging.

• Install the NLMAINLITE-2U-E at the front of the 19” cabinet with standard cage screws and cage nuts. (Normally installation close to the bottom of the cabinet works the best, because of the mains power feed position)
• Before mains power connections, make sure that the power is switched off at the circuit breakers.
• Connect the power feed of the NLMAINLITE-2U-E to a mains dedicated wall box.
• Connect devices like computers, printers etc. on any of the kettle-like connectors on the protected / monitored outlets of the NLMAINLITE-2U-E (Remember not to connect devices that draws more than 10A on a specific connector and make sure that accumulated consumption through all the 10A cables / plugs is not more than 16A. The total current capability of the NLMAINLITE-2U-E is 16A.)
• When all the mains wiring are done and safe, switch on the mains at the circuit breakers.
• Connect the Management port with a standard 1:1 patch lead to a RJ-45 point on the network.
• The default IP address is
• Once on the network telnet to the unit using the IP address port 9999.
• Change the IP address of the NLMAINLITE-2U-E in menu option ‘0’.
• Change the SNMP settings and manager IP address in menu option ‘1’.
• Install the Netshield Manager program and install the new devices.

The DeviceInstaller is an all-in-one utility for detecting various Lantronix devices (device servers) on a network. You can view current device parameters and make more devices available for viewing.

Note: For DeviceInstaller procedures specific to a device, please see the device’s User Guide.

This document describes the Lantronix Device Installer for Windows software release.

This document is divided into the following sections:

o Description
o Requirements
o Installation
o Upgrade Instructions
o New Features
o Resolved Problems
o Known Problems
o Technical Support


This utility provides users a single application, with a graphical interface and utilizing Microsoft’s .NET Framework, to access various configuration functions for Lantronix networking products. This makes it easy to perform initial setup, IP address assignment, firmware upgrades, and configuration changes.


The following items are required to run DeviceInstaller:

1. Windows
2. Microsoft .NET Framework v4.0.
3. Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.1, or later.
4. 30MB free hard drive space.

The “Internet Connection Firewall” must be disabled, or else UDP Port 30718 must be available. Otherwise, you will not be able to detect or communicate with any devices on the network. To configure, go to the Control Panel, go to Network Settings, select the corresponding network adapter, choose Properties, and go to the Advanced tab.


The DeviceInstaller is distributed in a single image as a self-extracting executable. It is included on the CD packaged with the device server.

1. The application installation directory defaults to C:\Program Files\DeviceInstaller4.4, unless another folder is selected during the installation process.
2. A shortcut to this application is created on the Start/Programs menu.
3. A log file of the installation can be found at c:\Users\<current user>\Local Settings\Temp\DeviceInstaller_Install.log

NOTE: The Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 must be installed. This comes installed on Windows 7 and above. If for some reason you received this setup utility without the .NET Framework, you can download it at the following URL:

All installations use Windows Installer 4.5, and can be downloaded at the following URL:
