Connecting the SRX1500 Services Gateway to a Management Console

Use the CONSOLE port on the services gateway to connect to a management console.

To connect the SRX1500 Services Gateway to a management console, use an RJ-45 cable:

  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. Plug the RJ-45 end of the cable into the CONSOLE port on the SRX1500 Services Gateway as shown in Figure 2.

  3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the management device.

    If the management device has a serial port, use the RJ-45 to DB-9 serial port adapter supplied with your services gateway. Use the following values to configure the serial port:

    • Baud rate—9600

    • Parity—N

    • Data bits—8

    • Stop bits—1

    • Flow control—none

    Note

    Alternately, you can use the USB cable to connect to the mini-USB console port on the services gateway. To use the USB console port, you must download a USB driver to the management device from the Silicon Labs page.
