    Logging In to the CLI

    Use this procedure to log in to the BTI7800 CLI. The BTI7800 CLI can be reached through SSH on port 22. The BTI7800 can support up to 20 simultaneous user CLI sessions.

    1. Physically connect the Management Ethernet interface on the CMM to your management IP network.

    2. Start an SSH session to the management interface from a computer on the management network. Use the shared management IP address you configured during commissioning and use port 22.

      Note: The BTI7800 has multiple IP addresses. You should always use the shared management IP address to reach the CLI. See Management Overview for more information on the shared management IP address.

      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 user@

      user@'s password: 
      Welcome to BTI 7800 CLI admin connected from using ssh on scm2 

      After you supply the correct login credentials, you will be logged in to the active SCM.

    3. When you log in, your CLI session is automatically placed in operational mode. To enter configuration mode type config. To return to operational mode, type exit.
      bti7800# config
      Entering configuration mode terminal
      bti7800(config)# exit

      Operational mode commands do not change the stored configuration. An example of an operational mode command is the show command. To change the stored configuration, you must execute commands in configuration mode.

    4. If desired, use the set command to set user preferences for this session.
      bti7800# set ?
      Possible completions:
        complete-on-space      Enable/disable completion on space
        idle-timeout           Configure idle timeout
        ignore-leading-space   Ignore leading whitespace (true/false)
        paginate               Paginate output from CLI commands
        prompt1                Set operational mode prompt
        prompt2                Set configure mode prompt
        screen-length          Configure screen length
        screen-width           Configure screen width
        terminal               Set terminal type

      For example, to set the idle-timeout to 6000 seconds:

      bti7800# set idle-timeout 6000

      Note: If you want settings to persist across login sessions, use the user-profile command in configuration mode.
