CTP2000 Management Ports


The management section of the CTP2000 series has one port for management access, a 10/100Base-T Ethernet port that accepts an RJ-45 (male) connector, providing an out-of-band connection for LAN access through an SSH session or SNMP.

The management port is considered a data terminal equipment (DTE) interface. Direct connection to a terminal or PC (which also has a DTE interface) requires a crossover cable.

To connect the device to the network:

  1. Insert an Ethernet cable (RJ-45) connector into the 10/100Base-T (RJ-45) port until it clicks into place.
  2. Connect the other end of the cable to the appropriate Ethernet network for an out-of-band connection.
