CTP2000 Console Port Setup
You can connect a local serial console (PC, Macintosh, or UNIX workstation) directly to the CONSOLE terminal port. When you connect a local serial console directly to the device, you can configure the device without an IP address. To communicate with the device, you must have a terminal emulation program running on your PC or Macintosh. You can use any terminal emulation program, such as HyperTerminal. A UNIX workstation can use the emulator TIP.
You can connect a local serial console to the COM2 port on the PP310 and PP332 processors. On the PP833 processor, a local serial 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”, 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” 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 plug 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”. Then, you can connect the PC’s DB-9 plug connector with the DB-9 adapter “p/n 720-014126”.
See CTP2000 Series Console Cable Pinouts for information about the pinouts of PP310/PP332 and PP833 processor console cables, USB-to-DB9 cable, and DB9-to-RJ45 adapters.
