Connecting an NFX350 Device to a Management Console

 

NFX350 device has a console port with an RJ-45 connector. Use the console port to connect the device to a management console or to a console server.

Ensure that you have an RJ-45 to DB-9 rollover cable available. An RJ-45 cable with an RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter is provided with the device.

Note

If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 plug connector pin and you want to connect your laptop or PC directly to the NFX350 device, use a combination of the RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter supplied with the device and a USB to DB-9 plug adapter. You must provide the USB to DB-9 plug adapter.

To connect the NFX350 device to a management console (see Figure 1 and Figure 2):

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