Ping Reboot (Cell ICMP Check)

ICMP Check (Ping Reboot)

ICMP Check (also know as Ping Reboot) is a very useful service which is recommended in 4G and 5G M2M/IoT remote router installations in unmanned locations. Ping Reboot/ICMP Check is a function in M2M 4G and 5G routers that can be set to restart the modem or the router itself . The ping reboot setting does this automatically when it detects a disconnection from the mobile network, meaning you don’t have to send an engineer to site to manually restart the router if the mobile network is showing down.

The mobile networks will disconnect devices at certain times, for example when capacity has been reached on a mast, most often a mobile 4G/5G device will reconnect with no issue. However, there are occasions where a device will fail to reconnect to the local cell tower and the device will need to be rebooted to reconnect. If the router is in a remote location, which most IoT router installations are, this will require an engineer to visit the site. The ICMP check will detect a disconnection from the internet when it fails to ping a predefinite public IP address, most commonly Googles public DNS server at 8.8.8.8. – the router will then auto-reboot or auto-reboot the modem to establish an internet connection.

ICMP check configures the router to ping a specific IP address or hostname at a set interval, if the IP address/hostname is unreachable for a set period, the router will reboot either the whole device or just the module (modem). The IP address is usually set to a server which is guaranteed to be always online – like Google’s DNS servers at 8.8.8.8.

 

We recommend using the pre-filled settings in Proroute 4G and 5G routers, just tick enable and tick reconnect and save and apply to use this function.

ICMP Check (Ping reboot) is now enabled.

  •  Enable: Enable ICMP check feature

 

  • Host1 to ping / Host2 to ping: The domain name or IP address for checking the network connection.

 

  • Ping timeout: After a ping packet is sent, if the response packet is not received before timeout, then this ping has failed.

 

  • Max retries: Denoted the number of retries which are attempted before the selected ‘action when failed’ field is triggered. If the ping is returned and therefore doesn’t fail, the counter will be reset to 0.

 

  • Interval between ping: The time between two pings in minutes.

 

  • Reconnect: Instruct the router to reconnect.

 

  • Action when failed: the options are “Restart module” and “Restart router”. “Restart module” will restart the radio module (modem), and “Restart router” will restart the whole system including radio module (modem).

Wind Turbine Remote Management

Wind Turbine IoT Remote Management

 

Renewable energy generation by wind turbines is a key area for the use of 4G data sim cards and 4G IoT M2M Routers. Renewable energy assets are very often in remote areas for the generation of electricity. Renewable energy generation by wind turbines is a rapidly growing industry in the UK and around the world. Renewable energy assets require secure remote connectivity to control their operation and maintaiance.

 

In the case of wind turbines these very often need to be monitored remotely. The constantly changing operation of wind turbines to maximise the performance of the turbine based upon, for example, wind speed means that data needs to be constantly monitored both for efficiency and security. If the blades spin too fast they could become damaged and stop producing renewable energy. By utilising a 4G Router with 4G Fixed IP SIM card the wind turbine can be monitored remotely and the assets can be secured.

 

Wind turbines are very often located in remote areas where there are no BT Openreach lines. Installing fixed line broadband is not an option due to the cost of installation. Installing a 4G router with a Fixed IP Roaming sim card and external 4G antenna on the outside of the turbine to pick up the best signal is the optimum solution to remotely manage a wind turbine. 1-3GB is often enough data to successfully manage the turbine effectively.

Teltonika Upgrade RUTOS Security

Teltonika Announce Upgrade To RUTOS Security Features For Attack Prevention

 

Lately, we are spending more time online than ever before. The global pandemic unquestionably made all of us stay at home a lot and drawn us closer to the cyber world. We use the internet for so many things now, including communication, entertainment, shopping, and remote working. With increasing internet usage, cybercrime is also on the rise. The risks of becoming a victim of data breaches have never been higher for individuals and organizations.

 

Being aware of the significant negative consequences of a cyberattack, we are constantly improving our operating system to ensure it meets the highest security standards. Today we would like to introduce you to the main attack prevention measures available on RutOS.

 

Additional security features of RutOS: attack prevention

 

Port scan prevention

According to Deividas Vyšniauskas, cybersecurity specialist at Teltonika Networks, from his experience, port scanning is the most common malicious technique on the network. The port scan can reveal critical information about a network, which will determine the attack vector of the malicious actor. The port scanning mitigation works by monitoring the requests from devices across the web and blocking any continuous scanning activity. A network administrator can adjust the packet count and time limit of such requests not to block legitimate traffic. The most common port scanning techniques mitigated on RutOS include TCP Xmas, SYN FIN and FIN, and NULL Flags.

 

Distributed Denial of Service attack prevention

Different types of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are SYN flooding, ICMP request bursts, and continuous HTTP(s) and SSH connection initializations. All these varied techniques have one common goal – device resource exhaustion. This mitigation of such attacks works by limiting the number of connections the router will allow depending on a customizable setting.

A user can limit the burst amount depending on the packet count and the time interval in which these requests get generated. After reaching the set limits, the router will not engage in the connections to conserve resources. This way, the load on the router is eased and prevents system disruption from resource exhaustion. These triggered events are also logged and available for review by the administrator for further investigation at any point.

Deividas shared that throughout his career, he had encountered several attackers aiming to disrupt the company’s business operations by performing DDoS attacks. After the first attempt, they usually try to coerce money from the organization by threatening to come back with a second, more severe attack. Often, the attackers are trying to bluff their way into profit, but they are sometimes true to their word. Ideally, to block high-level DDoS attacks, a combination of measures should be used and involve proper firewall rules, load balancers, and geo-blocking.

 

Brute Force prevention

Brute force attacks aim to possess the personal information of an online user, such as passwords, login names, PINs, and similar. These attacks are carried out using a script or hacking application containing an extensive list of predetermined possible passwords. It might as well be outright attempts to guess the password one letter and number at a time. Brute force prevention needs to be applied for both the WebUI login page and the SSH interface of the device.

The network administrator can limit the amount of failed login attempts. Exceeding the number of guesses will cause adding the device to a block list to prevent further interaction. The default number on RutOS is ten attempts; however, this limit is customizable. The administrator can remove devices from the blocklist at any time. This security feature is on by default, and all the events are logged for investigation purposes.

So, here was a quick glimpse into the additional security features of RutOS. Strong network security will undoubtedly involve more essential components, like tight firewall rules, network segmentation, and proper VPN usage. If you would like to learn more about RutOS security, we recommend reading an article on this topic or watch a webinar recording should you prefer video format over reading.
