Connecting a CTP151 Device to a Management Console

 

The CTP151 device has a console port with an RJ-45 connector. Use the console port to connect the device to a management console or to a console server.

Before you begin, ensure that you have a rollover cable available.

To connect the CTP151 device to a management console through a console server (see Figure 1):

  1. Connect one end of the rollover cable to the console port (labeled CON).
  2. Connect the other end of the rollover cable to the console server (see Figure 1).

If your PC or laptop has a DB-9 plug connector pin, you can use a combination of the RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter supplied with the device to connect your PC to the CTP151 device (Figure 2). If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 plug connector pin, you must use the Mini-USB console port on the front panel of the CTP151 to connect your laptop or PC directly to the CTP151 device.
