TCP/IP network upgrades are performed using TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) or FTP (File Transfer Protocol) depending upon the product model. Each model's upgrade instructions ellaborate on this further.


If a network upgrade cannot be performed, new flash chips can be purchased from Microplex at a cost.

Repair Steps

To obtain service under the product warranty, these steps must be taken:

  1. Contact Microplex Technical Support to rule out configuration errors.

  3. The defective product should be returned to Microplex for repair noting this RMA number on the box.


RMA numbers will not be given out unless a Microplex Support Technician has first had the chance to try and solve the problem remotely. Once thorough testing has been completed and hardware is ruled as the definite cause, an RMA number can then be given.
