Replacing the Console or Auxiliary Cable

 

If a cable is already connected to the CONSOLE or AUX/MODEM port, follow these steps to remove it:

  1. Turn off the power to the console or auxiliary device.
  2. Unscrew the screws that secure the cable connector to the port, using a 2.5-mm flat-blade screwdriver if necessary.
  3. Pull the cable connector straight out of the port.
  4. Disconnect the cable from the console or auxiliary device.

To connect the new cable, follow these steps:

  1. Plug the female end of the replacement serial cable into the CONSOLE or AUX/MODEM port (see Routing Engine Interface Ports).
  2. Tighten the screws on the connector.
  3. Power on the auxiliary or console device.
