Media Flow Controller Configuration Tasks : Configuration Methods : Configuring with the Command Line Interface (CLI)

Configuring with the Command Line Interface (CLI)
Media Flow Controller CLI is modal; that is, depending on what mode you are in, you can execute different commands. When you log into the management shell over SSH (or optionally TELNET, if enabled; not recommended) you are in the lowest tier, Standard mode; show, help, diagnostic commands and a few others can be entered. You get into Enable mode by entering the enable command. In Enable mode you can display current configurations but not make configurations. You need to enter Configuration mode in order to make any changes:
At the prompt, enter enable to change to Enable mode.
Now enter config terminal to change to Configuration mode.
To get a brief description of the usage of any command, type the command followed by a question mark (?); to see the parameters and syntax for any command, type the command followed by a space and a question mark (?). To exit an over-long list, type q.
Note! The prompt begins with the hostname of the system (or mfc-unconfigured-<MAC_address> if hostname has not been set). What follows depends on the command mode. For example, if the hostname is "test-vos". The prompts for each of the modes would be:
test-vos > (Standard mode)
test-vos # (Enable mode)
test-vos (config) # (Config mode)
Commands that succeed do not print any response. The next thing you see after pressing Enter is the command prompt.
If an error is encountered in executing a command, the response begins with "% ", followed by some text describing the error.
