Connecting a Junos Space Appliance to a Management Console
You can configure and manage a Junos Space Appliance by using a dedicated console. Every appliance has a console port with an RJ-45 connector. Use the console port to connect the appliance to the management console or to a console server. Ensure that you have an Ethernet cable with an RJ-45 connector available. An RJ-45 cable, as shown in Figure 12, and an RJ-45 to DB-9 serial port adapter are supplied with the appliance.
To connect the appliance to a management console, do the following:
- Connect the RJ-45 to DB-9 serial port adapter to the serial
port of the management device (laptop or PC) that you will use to
access the Junos Space CLI.
If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 male connector pin and you want to connect your laptop or PC directly to the appliance, use a combination of the RJ-45 to DB-9 female adapter supplied with the appliance and a USB to DB-9 male adapter. You must provide the USB to DB-9 male adapter.
- Connect one end of the Ethernet cable into the console
CONSOLE) on the front panel of the appliance.
- Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable into the RJ-45 to DB-9 serial port adapter.
