Connecting Directly to the CTP150 Platform


You can connect a console terminal (PC, Macintosh, or UNIX workstation) directly to the CONSOLE port on the CTP150 device. Initial configuration of the CTP device requires a direct connection. Once you configure an IP address for the device, you can connect to the device remotely.

To communicate with the device through the console, you must have a terminal emulation program running on your console terminal. You can use any terminal emulation program, such as HyperTerminal. A UNIX workstation can use the emulator TIP.

To connect a console directly to the CTP150 device:

  1. Connect the RJ-45 connector to the CONSOLE port.
  2. Connect the crossover adapter connector to your console’s serial port.
  3. You can now power on the device. See Powering On and Initially Configuring the CTP150 Device.
