Connect an ACX710 Router to a Management Console

 

ACX710 routers have a console (CON) port that uses an RJ-45 connector to connect the device to a management console or a console server.

Ensure that you have an RJ-45 to DB-9 rollover cable available.

Figure 1 shows the RJ-45 connector of an Ethernet cable.

Note

If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 pin contact and you want to connect your laptop or PC directly to the ACX710 router, use a combination of the RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter and a USB to DB-9 plug adapter.

To connect the ACX710 router to a management console (see Figure 2 and Figure 3):

  1. Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the console port (labeled CON) on the device.
  2. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable into the console server (see Figure 2) or management console (see Figure 3).
