Connecting the SRX1400 Services Gateway to a Management Console or an Auxiliary Device


To use a system console to configure and manage the Routing Engine, use an RJ-45 cable to connect it to one of the CONSOLE ports on the SYSIOC.

To connect a management console or an auxiliary device:

  1. Plug the RJ-45 end of the cable (see Figure 1) into one of the CONSOLE ports on the SYSIOC.
