Figure 1: Connecting the Management DeviceConnecting the Management Device

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


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.

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


    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
