Connecting the TCX1000-RDM20 to a Management Console

 

The TCX1000-RDM20 has a console port (labeled SERIAL) with a DB-9 connector.

Ensure that you have an RJ-45 to DB-9 rollover cable available.

Note

If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 male connector pin and you want to connect your laptop or PC directly to the TCX1000-RDM20, use a combination of the RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter and a USB to DB-9 male adapter.

To connect the TCX1000-RDM20 to a management console:

  1. Connect one end of the RJ-45 to DB-9 rollover cable to the console port (labeled SERIAL). See Figure 1 and Figure 2.
  2. Connect the other end of the cable directly to a management console or console server.
