Logging In to a Device for the First Time Through a Mini USB Port

Logging In to a Device for the First Time Through a Mini USB Port

If no console port is available on your PC, you can use a mini USB cable to connect a USB port on the PC to the mini USB port of a device that is being powered on for the first time. After that, you can perform basic configuration on the device and manage the device.

Pre-configuration Tasks

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

  • Powering on the device
  • Preparing a mini USB cable (You can use type-B mini USB cable, which is not delivered with the device.)
  • Obtaining the mini USB driver that is compatible with the PC's operating system

    To obtain the mini USB driver, visit and download for the required version of the device. The mini USB driver supports only Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems.

  • Installing the terminal emulation software on the PC

    You can use the self-contained terminal emulation software of the operating system (such as HyperTerminal in Windows 2000) on your PC. If the operating system does not provide terminal emulation software, use third-party terminal emulation software. For details on how to use specific terminal emulation software, see the related software user guide or online help. This section uses the third-party software SecureCRT as an example.

Default Configuration

Parameter Default Setting
Baud rate 9600 bit/s
Flow control None
Parity None
Stop bits 1
Data bits 8


  1. Install the mini USB driver on the PC.

    For details on how to install a mini USB driver, see Installation and Uninstallation Guide in the driver file package.

    The driver file contains two drivers: and, applicable to different devices. (X represents the version number, and a larger value indicates a later version.) Select a proper driver based on the device model before installation.

  2. Use a mini USB cable to connect the USB port on the PC to the mini USB port on the device, as shown in Figure 5-4.

  3. Start the terminal emulation software on the PC. Create a connection, select the port for connection, and set communication parameters. (This section uses the third-party software SecureCRT as an example.)
    1. Click to establish a connection, as shown in Figure 5-5.

      Figure 5-5  Establishing a connection

    2. Set the port for connection and communication parameters, as shown in Figure 5-6.

      Select the port for connection. For example, you can view port information in Device Manager in the Windows operating system, and select the port for connection.

      Communication parameters of the terminal emulation software must be consistent with the default attribute settings of the MiniUSB user interface on the device, which are 9600 bit/s baud rate, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity check, and no flow control.


      By default, no flow control mode is configured on the device. Because RTS/CTS is selected in the software by default, you need to deselect RTS/CTS; otherwise, you cannot enter commands.

  4. Click Connect. The following information will be displayed, prompting you to enter the user name and password. The default user name for first login is admin and default password is (The following output is only for reference.)

    Login authentication 
    Warning: The default password poses security risks.
    The password needs to be changed. Change now? [Y/N]: y
    Please enter old password: 
    Please enter new password: 
    Please confirm new password: 
    The password has been changed successfully
    • The password entered in interactive mode is not displayed on the screen.
    • If you do not change the authentication mode and password after entering the user view and log in to the device again, the authentication password is the password configured during first login.

    You can run commands to configure the device. Enter a question mark (?) whenever you need help.
