    Cabling the LN1000 Rear Transition Module

    To cable the LN1000 rear transition module, you need the following items:

    • RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter (provided)
    • External power supply
    • Up to nine copper Ethernet cables with RJ-45 connectors: one cable to connect to the console port and eight cables to connect to the gigabit Ethernet ports. (These cables are not provided with the router hardware.)

    To cable the LN1000 rear transition module:

    1. Insert one end of the console cable with an RJ-45 connector into the NPU console connector port on the front panel of the rear transition module.
    2. Insert the RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter on the other end of the console cable.
    3. Insert the DB-9 adapter into the serial port on your PC.
    4. Insert the RJ-45 connectors on the copper Ethernet cables into the Ethernet ports on the front panel of the rear transition module.

      Note: The USB connector on the front panel of the rear transition module accepts a USB storage device. You can boot from a USB storage device in the event of system damage, or for updating system software. It is not needed for normal operation.
