Console Port Connector Pinouts for the QFX Series
The console port (labeled
CONSOLE) is an RS-232 serial interface that uses an RJ-45
connector to connect to a console management device. The default baud
rate for the console port is 9600 baud.
Table 1 provides the pinout information for the RJ-45 console connector. An RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter are supplied with the QFX Series device.
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 a QFX Series device, use a combination of the RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter supplied with the device and a USB to DB-9 male adapter. You must provide the USB to DB-9 male adapter.
