Hello,

Thank you for contacting Teltonika Crowd Support.

Apart from rebooting using the WebUI, RUT240 has simple and easy feature that can enable you to reboot the device remotely. This can be done by simply sending a text to the RUT240 and it reboots.

To set this feature, go to Services >> Mobile Utilities >> SMS Utilities on Reboot click the pencil like tool to edit.

Enable the feature.

On authorization, choose the kind of authorization that you prefer. No Authorization, By serial, By router admin password.

Example to reboot using the Router admin password, send an sms to the sim card inserted using the following syntax

<router_admin_password> reboot

I.e

password reboot

For more information on mobile utilities kindly check the following link https://wiki.teltonika-networks.com/view/RUT200_Mobile_Utilities

For more technical support, revert.

Kind regards,

Shadrack.

Hi

Thanks for your reply, we use this feature already for our engineers, however the end user has no facility to do this option.  They are CCTV control room operators, we currently have a simple webpage with buttons on to reboot IP cameras via a HTTP string.  Was looking to do the same with the routers.

Are there any other options that i can use that makes it simple for the end user?  Obviously SMS is the easiest way but cannot be used in this environment.

Thanks

Hello,

Apart from the above solution we have the Auto Reboot feature which enables the device to automatically reboot. We have Ping/Wget Reboot in which the Router periodically send ICMP or Wget requests to a specified IP address or host and waits for a response. If no response is received, the device will attempt the same action a defined number of times at a defined frequency. If there is still no response, the device will execute the specified action (reboot, by default).

We also have a Reboot Scheduler function that reboots the device at a specified time interval regardless of other circumstances. It can be used as a prophylactic measure, for example, to reboot the device once at the end of every day.

So instead of the client rebooting the device manually you can set the device to auto reboot at a certain time during the day or once in a week. I hope this will be the best option for you.

To set the Reboot Scheduler go to Services >> Auto Reboot >> Reboot Scheduler.
