This is a demonstration on how you can use a WiSnap WiFi Serial Network Access Point and your iOS device, such as an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch to manage networking hardware such as Cisco equipment, or any other equipment that has an ASCII command line interface. Here we are using a Bluetooth Access Point.
The first step is to join the iOS device to the WiSnap's ad-hoc network. The WiSnap needs to be in ad-hoc mode, this is how the WiSnap is shipped, but you can also use the WiSnap DIP switch or jumper to put the WiSnap in Ad-hoc mode. Open the iOS settings app and choose the Network option, tap on the WiSnap network and it will join. Note that while the iOS settings app will show a checkbox very quickly the actual Ad-Hoc join takes about 20 seconds and can be confirmed when the iOS WiFi icon shows up in the status bar.
Please note joining the Ad-Hoc network is different from connecting the iOS device to the WiSnap. To connect, launch the WiSnap Setup Plus application or a Telnet terminal application. Here we will use WiSnap Setup Plus to connect to the WiSnap. Tap the "WiSnap Module" menu option and iOS and WiSnap should connect very quickly.
Once connected, you can send commands to the network equipment, and get responses. With a Terminal app you would type the commands, with WiSnap Setup Plus you can type commands, but you can also define commands and store them, then simply tap the command to send it. Here we have defined the command to show the network equipment status, we tap on the command list option, then tap the command, and the equipment returns the status information.
