First Login Through the Console Port

First Login Through the Console Port

You can log in to a switch that is powered on for the first time through the console port from a PC.

Before You Begin

Ensure the following:

  • The switch is powered on.
  • You have a console cable.
  • 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. Connect the DB9 female connector of the console cable to the serial port (COM) on the PC, and connect the RJ45 connector to the console port on the switch, as shown in Figure 5-1.

    Figure 5-1  Connecting to the switch through the console port


    If a maintenance terminal (PC) does not have a DB9 serial port, purchase a USB-to-DB9 cable that has a DB9 male connector with nuts. Connect the DB9 female connector of the console cable to the DB9 male connector, and connect the USB connector to the USB port of the maintenance terminal.

  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 5-2.

      Figure 5-2  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 5-3.

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

      Table 5-1  Default settings for the console 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.

    • After the first login, you must change the default password. For device security purposes, change the password periodically.
    • The password entered in interactive mode is not displayed on the screen.
