Connecting the T1600 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 with RJ-45 connectors to the ETHERNET port on the CIP. One cable is provided with the router.

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  2. Turn off the power to the management device.
  3. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable (Figure 1 shows the connector) in to the appropriate ETHERNET port on the CIP (see Figure 2). The ports labeled HOST 0 connect to the Routing Engine in the upper Routing Engine slot (RE0), and the ports labeled HOST 1 connect to the Routing Engine in the lower Routing Engine slot (RE1).
  4. Plug the other end of the cable into the network device.
