How to configure a BlueSnap dongle

You can configure a BlueSnap dongle by using a terminal application, such as PuTTY, TeraTerm, or JavaTerm. In this example, we are changing the baud rate of a BlueSnap AAA from the default 115200 to 9600 using PuTTY. Afterward, we will verify the BlueSnap's firmware, then save the configuration.

Set the Communication Configuration

1. Open PuTTY and select the Serial radio button, choose your COM port, and set the baud rate (by default 115200).

2. Type $$$ on your keyboard. You should see a return of CMD. This will enter command mode; you can verify this by looking at the green LED on the BlueSnap unit - it should be blinking quickly.

3. Type SU,9600 to change the baud rate to 9600. You should see a return of AOK.

4. Type v to check the firmware version currently installed on the unit.

5. Type r,1 to save the settings and reboot the device. You should see a return of Reboot!. The green LED should stop blinking on the unit.

6. Close PuTTY.

Verify the Configuration 

To verify the settings we just changed you will need to follow the below steps:

1. Open PuTTY and select the Serial radio button, choose your COM port and set the baud rate to 9600 (note this baud rate is different from the default because we changed it in the previous steps).

2. Type $$$ on your keyboard. You should see a return of CMD.

3. Type d to check the basic Settings.

4. Type o to check the Other Settings.

5. Type e to check the Advanced Settings.

If at any point in these steps you received a return of ERR re-type the command from your keyboard. The ERR reply notes a typographical error or incorrect command was sent.
