CTP2000 Series Console Cable Pinouts

 

The console port CTP2008, CTP2024, and CTP2056 devices with the new PP833 processor uses a USB-type connector located on the right of the PP833 faceplate labelled “RS-232”. CTP2000 series devices with the PP310 and PP332 processors use an RJ-45 connected to the COM2 port. This cable must be connected during the first boot process. Use a shielded cable for the COM2 port on the CTP2056 device. Figure 31 displays the console cable pin configurations for CTP2000 series devices with the PP310 and PP332 processors. On the left is the RJ-45 connector, and on the right is the DB-9 connector with the pin numbering indicated.

The console connections are configured to the following parameters:

  • Speed: 9600 bps

  • Data bits: 8

  • Stop bits: 1

  • Flow control: Xon/Xoff

  • Parity: none

You can connect a console (PC, Macintosh, or UNIX workstation) directly to the COM2 port on the PP310 and PP332 processors. On the PP833 processor, a console is connected using the supplied USB-to-DB9 cable (p/n 720-071594), in which the DB-9 connector has the same pinout as a standard RS-232 DTE port. When the USB-to-DB9 cable is used in conjunction with the DB-9 adapter labelled “p/n 450-071855” (see Figure 32), the available RJ-45 console pinout will be the same as the console connection on the RTM of PP332/PP310 processor.

Alternatively, if the DB-9 adapter from the bag labelled “p/n 720-056657” (see Figure 33) is used instead of “p/n 450-071855”, the available RJ-45 console pinout will be similar to the CTP150 console port (and other Juniper routers). To connect the PP833 processor with the DB-9 male serial port of a PC, additionally connect a straight RJ-45 cable with the DB-9 adapter from the bag labelled “p/n 720-056657”. The other end of the RJ-45 cable connects to the DB-9 adapter from the bag labelled “p/n 720-014126” (see Figure 34). Then, you can connect the PC’s DB-9 male connector with the DB-9 adapter “p/n 720-014126”.
