Connecting the MX960 Router to a Network for Out-of-Band Management

 

To connect the Routing Engine to a network for out-of-band management, connect an Ethernet cable with RJ-45 connectors to the ETHERNET port on the Routing Engine. One Ethernet cable is provided with the router. To connect to the ETHERNET port on the Routing Engine:

  1. Turn off the power to the management device.
  2. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable (Figure 2 shows the connector) into the ETHERNET port on the Routing Engine. Figure 1 shows the port.
  3. Plug the other end of the cable into the network device.
