Logging In to a Device Through a Console Port

You can connect a terminal to the console port on a device to establish a configuration environment.

Usage Scenario

To configure or manage a device powered on for the first time, you can use the console port to log in to it.

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before logging in to a device through a console port, complete the following tasks:

  • Install a terminal emulation program, such as PuTTY, on the PC.

  • Prepare a console configuration cable.

    If a third-party USB-to-RJ45 serial cable is used, it is recommended that the cable be no longer than 2 m to ensure the signal integrity during transmission.
