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):
- Connect one end of the rollover cable to the console port
- 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.
