One such cable is provided with the router (see Routing Engine Interface Cable and Wire Specifications for the M7i Router). Follow this procedure:

  1. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable (Figure 1 shows the connector) into the MGMT port on the Routing Engine Figure 2 shows the layout of the ports on the Routing Engine.
  2. Plug the other end of the cable into the network device.
