Changing Bulk configuration options can be applied to other units with the same product model by using an existing config file from a Peplink or Pepwave device.
This option is accessible from Group Settings > Bulk Configurator.
The Bulk Configurator will push the configuration file(s) onto the corresponding applicable devices. In addition, it will also individualize the following settings if applicable:
- Wi-Fi AP SSID and Radio *
- PepVPN / SpeedFusion *
- VLAN Networks
- Outbound Policy *
- Firewall Rules *
- Web Admin Settings *
- Device name
- Time zone *
Wi-Fi AP on/off state, Remote Assistance state, WANs’ Dynamic DNS settings and PPPoE credentials in the configuration file(s) are discarded and not applied.
* When its management option on InControl is disabled, its setting in the configuration file(s) will be applied.
When more than one configuration is assigned to a device, the topmost one will be applied.
Config file management
After configuring a Peplink or Pepwave with the required settings, download the configuration file from the local web admin or InControl device details.
A new window will appear after selecting the ‘Upload New Config file’ button.
The new window will show details of the product model.
Optionally PepVPN settings can be preserved, but InControl PepVPN management will have priority over these bulk-configuration settings.
The Configuration time and Device selection need to be configured to decide which units receive the new settings at what time.
