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