Configuring for leased line or dial-up is accomplished by the setting of a jumper on the modem board and through the AT command process. As the DLM4000 comes configured from the factory for each specific application, this is usually unecessary. If changing the configuration of the DLM4000 does become necessary, please refer to the DLM4000 User´s Guide for detailed instructions.
