    Setting Up Management Access on the CTP1000 Platform

    Before you power on the device, you must set up a management console. You use the console to communicate with the device during the power-on process, to set an IP address, and to manage the system using the command-line interface (CLI).

    You can monitor and manage the system through either of these methods:

    • Console terminal—Connect a console (PC, Macintosh, or UNIX workstation) directly to the device’s RS-232 serial port.
    • Remote console—Connect 10/100Base-T to an Ethernet port, and run SSH from a remote console.

    For initial access to the system, you need to physically connect your console directly to the device’s RS-232 port. Through this connection you use the CLI to set an IP address on the device. After you configure the IP address, you can access the device remotely (for example, through SSH).
