Connecting a Console Server to VXA1000 Series Media Flow Engines

VXA Series Media Flow Engines are shipped with Media Flow Controller software already installed. You use a local serial console server or terminal server to assign an IP address when you first power on the appliance. Subsequent appliance and software configuration is accomplished through a network connection to the appliance on one of the traffic ports.

To connect a console server:

  1. Turn off the power to the console.
  2. Connect a cable to the CONSOLE port on the front panel of the appliance.

    The CONSOLE port accepts a cable with an RJ-45 connector. A cable is supplied with the appliance.

  3. Connect the other end of the cable to your console server or terminal server.

To connect a network:

  1. Connect an RJ-45 Ethernet cable to one of the traffic ports on the front panel of the appliance.
  2. Connect the other end of the cable to your local network.
