Connecting the SRX320 Services Gateway to a Management Console

Use the CONSOLE port on the services gateway to connect to a management console.

To connect the SRX320 Services Gateway to a management console, use an RJ-45 cable:

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  2. Plug the RJ-45 end of the cable into the CONSOLE port on the SRX320 Services Gateway as shown in Figure 1.

  3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the supplied DB-9 adapter, which then connects to the serial port on the management device (serial port settings: 9600-N-1).
    Note:

    Alternately, you can use the USB cable to connect to the mini-USB console port on the services gateway. To use the mini-USB console port, you must download a USB driver to the management device from the Downloads page. To download the driver for Windows OS, select 6.5 from the Version drop-down list. To download the driver for Mac OS, select 4.10 from the Version drop-down list.
