Connecting to the SRX300 Services Gateway CLI Using a Dial-Up Modem

To remotely connect to the CLI through a dial-up modem connected to the console port on the services gateway:

  1. Connect a modem at your remote location to a management device such as a PC or laptop computer.
  2. Start your asynchronous terminal emulation application (such as Microsoft Windows HyperTerminal) on the PC or laptop computer.
  3. Select the COM port to which the modem is connected (for example, COM1).
  4. Configure the port settings :
    • Bits per second—9600

    • Data bits—8

    • Parity—None

    • Stop bits—1

    • Flow control—None

  5. In the HyperTerminal window, enter AT.

    An OK response verifies that the modem can communicate successfully with the COM port on the PC or laptop.

  6. Dial the modem that is connected to the console port on the services gateway by entering ATDT remote-modem-number. For example, if the number of the modem connected to the console port on the services gateway is 0013033033030, enter ATDT 0013033033030.

    The services gateway login prompt appears.

  7. Log in as the root user. No password is required at initial connection, but you must assign a root password before committing any configuration settings.
