Logging In to a Server Over a Network Port by Using PuTTY

Use PuTTY to remotely log in to a server over a local area network (LAN) and to configure and maintain the server.

The server in this topic can be a management module, compute node, or switching plane.

  • User name and password for logging in to the server to be connected


PuTTY.exe: third-party software.


  1. A PC is connected to the management network port of MM910 by using a network cable.
  2. Set an IP address and a subnet mask or add route information for the PC so that the PC can properly communicate with the server.

    You can run the Ping Server IP address command on the PC command-line interface (CLI) to check the communication between the PC and the server.

  3. Double-click PuTTY.exe.

    The PuTTY Configuration window is displayed, as shown in Figure 6-1.
