    Logging In to the CMM Craft Ethernet or Craft Serial Ports

    Use this procedure to log in to the craft Ethernet or craft serial ports on a CMM. You typically do this when commissioning a new system, performing a software installation from a system repair drive, or setting the CMM software and configuration back to factory defaults.

    Table 1: Port Settings

    Type of connection



    • Baud rate: 115200 bps (bits per second)
    • Data bits: 8
    • Parity: None
    • Stop bits: 1 bit


    • Management IP address / subnet of craft Ethernet port:
    • SSH port: 22
    1. Set the port parameters on your PC.
      1. For the craft serial port, set the serial port parameters on your PC as specified in Table 1.
      2. For the craft Ethernet port, set the IP address of the Ethernet port on your PC to be on the same subnet as the management IP address specified in Table 1.
    2. Connect an RS-232 or Ethernet UTP cable (CAT5 or better) from your PC to the respective CMM craft port.

    3. Establish communication with the management interface on the craft port.
      1. For the craft serial port, press the enter key to get the login prompt.
      2. For the craft Ethernet port, start an SSH session to the management interface.

        For Linux and MAC OS X, launch a terminal window and start an SSH session. For Windows, install and launch a terminal application (for example, PuTTY).

        $ ssh -p22

        Once connected, you will see the login prompt.

    4. Log in as the admin user.

      For example:

      localhost login: admin
      Shell Help: 
      List of the commands you can use: 
      setup  - Commission the CMM 
      cli    - Open CLI interface to the system 
      reboot - Reboot the CMM 
      exit   - Logout  

      You can now execute the above shell commands.

      Note: Only use the shell commands listed in the help output. Unlisted commands are not supported and should not be used.

      Note: The login credentials and the available commands might differ if you are performing a software installation from a system repair drive. For more information, see Restoring a System from a System Repair Drive.
