Description:
As of version 1.91 of the LANCOM Wireless ePaper Server, the TCP-based ePaper communication protocol ThinAP2.0 can be enabled on the server.
By supporting the ThinAP 2.0 protocol, LANCOM Wireless ePaper Displays can now managed remotely and reliably from the Wireless ePaper Server at your data center and controlled via VPN.
This document describes how to enable the ThinAP 2.0 protocol on the LANCOM Wireless ePaper Server for access points with an integrated ePaper radio module as well as the LANCOM Wireless ePaper USB.

To use the ThinAP2.0 protocol, the LANCOM ePaper access points must operate at least LCOS version 10.30.


Requirements:

Procedure:
Procedure for use of access points with an integrated ePaper radio module:
1) Open the command line on your operating system and enter the following commands:
curl -X PUT http://<Server>:8001/service/configuration/lancomUseTcpThinMode?value=true
curl -X PUT http://<Server>:8001/service/configuration/lancomUseTcpThinOutboundMode?value=true
2) Restart the LANCOM Wireless ePaper Server.
3) To check whether the ePaper access points are using the ThinAP2.0 protocol, use the WEBconfig configuration of the access points and navigate to the menu Status → Wireless ePaper.


Procedure for use of the LANCOM Wireless ePaper USB:
1) Open the command line on your operating system and enter the following commands:
curl -X PUT http://<Server>:8001/service/configuration/accessPointUseThinMode?value=true
curl -X PUT http://<Server>:8001/service/configuration/accessPointThinUseOutboundMode?value=true
2) Restart the LANCOM Wireless ePaper Server.


Using ThinAP2.0 with TLS encryption (optional):

Optionally, as of LCOS 10.42 the communication between ePaper access point and ePaper server can be encrypted with TLS.

Connect to the ePaper access point via a web browser, go to the menu Extras → LCOS Menu Tree → Setup → Wireless-ePaper and modify the following parameters:  

  • Outbound-Protocol: Select the option ThinAP2.0/TLS.
  • Outbound-Server: Enter the IP address of the ePaper server.
  • Port: Enter the port 7354.
