Refer to the JSA7800 Back Panel Components table for the location of the ports in JSA7800 Appliance Back Panel Description.

Note:

You can choose any GB ports as the management port.

You can connect external devices using the ports on the back panel of the appliance.

To connect a management device with the JSA7800 appliance:

  1. If you use a laptop, connect the laptop to the DB-9 serial COM port on the back panel.
    Note:

    When using a laptop to connect to the appliance, you must use a terminal program, such as HyperTerminal, to connect to the appliance.

    Note:

    If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 plug connector pin and you want to connect your laptop or PC directly to the JSA7800 appliance, use a combination of a USB to DB-9 plug adapter and a DB-9 F/F cable.

  2. Select the appropriate COM port to use.
  3. Configure the following COM port settings:
    • Bits per second = 9600

    • Stop bits = 1

    • Data bits = 8

    • Parity = None
