Management Port Connector Pinout Information for ACX Series Routers
The management port— labeled
MGMT— on an ACX Series router uses an RJ-45 connector to connect
to a management device for out-of-band management.
The port uses an autosensing RJ-45 connector to support a 10/100BASE-T connection. Two LEDs indicate link activity on the port and the administrative status of the port.
Table 2 provides the pinout information for the RJ-45 connector for the management port.
