    Replacing the M40e Console or Auxiliary Cable

    To use a system console to configure and manage the Routing Engine, connect it to the appropriate CONSOLE port on the CIP. To use a laptop, modem, or other auxiliary device, connect it to the appropriate AUXILIARY port on the CIP. Both ports accept a cable with an RJ-45 connector. One RJ-45/DB-9 cable is provided with the router. To connect a device to the other port, you must supply another cable. For cable specifications, see Routing Engine Interface Cable and Wire Specifications for the M40e Router.
