    Hi.

     

    Full instructions including supported modems can be found in the Instant 6.1.3.4-3.1.0.0 user guide.    It is in Chapter 24: Uplink Configuration.

    Please open a support case.  This modem is not on the list of tested/supported so it could require some custom parameters for the RAP3.

    I have already use this 3g key with RAP (RAP5) and ArubaOS 6.x and it works !

     

    My settings (for ArubaOS):

    • Device : Other (Any)
    • TTY Device Path : ttyUSB0
    • Initialization String : AT+CGDCONT=1,’IP’,’APN’
    • Device Identifier : 0x12d114cc
    • Device Type : option
    • Modeswitch : -v 12d1 -p 14b7 -M 55534243123456780000000000000011062000000100000000000000000000
    • Dial String : ATDT*99***1#
    • Link Priority Ethernet : 10

    Replace APN by your APN Provider
