Accessing the CLI


The Switch’s serial port’s default settings are as follows:


  • 115200 baud
  • no parity
  • 8 data bits
  • 1 stop bit
  • Flow Control: None


A computer running a terminal emulation program capable of emulating a
VT-100 terminal and a serial port configured as above are then connected
to the Switch’s Console port.


With the serial port properly connected to a management computer, press
the Enter key and enter the username and password.
