PTX10004 Console and Management Cable Specifications and Pinouts

The following sections describe the console port, the USB port, and the management port connections and specifications for the PTX10004 router.

Console Port Connector Pinouts for a PTX10004

The console port (labeled CON) on the Routing and Control Board (RCB) panel is an RS-232 serial interface that uses an RJ-45 connector to connect to a console management device. The default baud rate for the console port is 9600 baud.

Table 1 provides the pinout information for the RJ-45 console connector. An RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter are supplied with the PTX10004 routers.

Note:

If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 connector pin (plug) and you want to connect your laptop or PC directly to a PTX10004 router, use a combination of the RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter supplied with the device and a USB to DB-9 plug adapter. You must provide the USB to DB-9 plug adapter.

USB Port Specifications for the PTX10004

The following Juniper Networks USB flash drives have been tested and are officially supported for the USB port in the PTX10004 routers:

  • RE-USB-1G-S—1-gigabyte (GB) USB flash drive

  • RE-USB-2G-S—2-GB USB flash drive

  • RE-USB-4G-S—4-GB USB flash drive

CAUTION:

Any USB memory product not listed as supported for the PTX10004 routers has not been tested by Juniper Networks. The use of any unsupported USB memory product could expose your device to unpredictable behavior. Juniper Networks Technical Assistance Center (JTAC) can provide only limited support for issues related to unsupported hardware. We strongly recommend that you use only supported USB flash drives.

CAUTION:

Remove the USB flash drive before upgrading Junos OS or rebooting PTX10004 routers. Failure to do so could expose your device to unpredictable behavior.

Note:

USB flash drives used with the PTX10004 router must support USB 2.0 or later.

Management Port Connector Pinouts for the PTX10004

The 1000BASE-T RJ-45 management ports use an RJ-45 connector to connect a management device for out-of-band management.

Table 2 provides the pinout information of the RJ-45 management port connector. An RJ-45 cable is supplied with the PTX10004 router.
