First Login Through the Mini USB Port

First Login Through the 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 switch that is powered on for the first time.

The device connection method for mini USB port login is different from that for console port login but the communication parameters during login and configurations after login are the same.


Only the S5720HI and S5720EI (excluding the S5720-50X-EI-AC, S5720-50X-EI-DC, S5720-50X-EI-46S-DC, and S5720-50X-EI-46S-AC) support the first login through the mini USB port.

Before You Begin

Ensure the following:

  • The switch is powered on.
  • You have a mini USB cable. (You can use a type-B mini USB cable, which is not delivered with the switch.)
  • The mini USB driver that is compatible with the PC's operating system is installed on the PC.
    • To obtain the mini USB driver, visit and download in the corresponding path based on the product model and version.

    • 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

    • The mini USB driver supports only Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems.
    • For details on how to install a mini USB driver, see Installation and Uninstallation Guide in the driver file package.

  • The terminal emulation software is installed on the PC.

    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.


  1. 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.

  2. Start the terminal emulation software on the PC. Create a connection, select the port for connection, and set communication parameters.
    1. Click to establish a connection, as shown in Figure 5-5.

      Figure 5-5  Establishing a connection

    2. View port information in Device Manager in the Windows operating system, select the port for connection, and set communication parameters, as shown in Figure 5-6.

      Communication parameters of the terminal emulation software must be consistent with the default attribute settings of the mini USB user interface on the switch.

      Table 5-2  Default settings for the mini USB port
      Parameter Default Setting
      Baud rate 9600 bit/s
      Flow control None
      Parity None
      Stop bits 1
      Data bits 8
      User name admin

      Because RTS/CTS is selected in the software by default, you need to deselect RTS/CTS; otherwise, you cannot enter commands.
