CTP2000 Management Ports

You can monitor and manage the system through a local serial console or a remote network console.

  • Local serial console—You can connect a local serial console (PC, Macintosh, or UNIX workstation) directly to the COM2 port on the PP310 and PP332 processors. On the PP833 processor, a local serial console is connected using the supplied USB-to-DB9 cable (p/n 720-071594), in which the DB-9 connector has the same pinout as a standard RS-232 DTE port. When the USB-to-DB9 cable is used in conjunction with the DB-9 adapter labelled “p/n 450-071855”, the available RJ-45 console pinout will be the same as the console connection on the RTM of PP332/PP310 processor.

    Alternatively, if the DB-9 adapter from the bag labelled “p/n 720-056657” is used instead of “p/n 450-071855”, the available RJ-45 console pinout will be similar to the CTP150 console port (and other Juniper routers). To connect the PP833 processor with the DB-9 plug serial port of a PC, additionally connect a straight RJ-45 cable with the DB-9 adapter from the bag labelled “p/n 720-056657”. The other end of the RJ-45 cable connects to the DB-9 adapter from the bag labelled “p/n 720-014126”. Then, you can connect the PC’s DB-9 plug connector with the DB-9 adapter “p/n 720-014126”. See CTP2000 Series Console Cable Pinouts for more information about console cable pinouts.

  • Remote network console—Connect Ethernet to an Ethernet port, and run SSH from a remote network console.

For initial access to the system, you need to physically connect your console directly to the device’s RS-232 port. Through this connection, you use the CLI to set an IP address on the device. After you configure the IP address, you can access the device remotely (for example, through SSH).


You don't need an adapter for PPF84, as it has RJ45 console port. See Figure 1.
