Connecting the MX2020 Router to a Network for Out-of-Band Management
To connect the CB-RE to a
network for out-of-band management, connect an Ethernet cable with
RJ-45 connectors to the
MGMT port on the CB-RE
interface. One Ethernet cable is provided with the router. To connect
MGMT port on the CB-RE interface:
- Turn off the power to the management device.
- Plug one end of the Ethernet cable (Figure 2 shows the connector) into the
MGMTport on the CB-RE interface. Figure 1 shows the port. Table 1 describes the Ethernet ports.
- Plug the other end of the cable into the network device.
