Connect to a node by starting a session with the terminal concentrator port that the node is cabled to.
# telnet tc_name tc_port_number
Specifies the name of the terminal concentrator.
Specifies the port number on the terminal concentrator. Port numbers are configuration dependent. Typically, ports 2 and 3 (5002 and 5003) are used for the first cluster that is installed at a site.
If you set up node security, you are prompted for the port password.
Log in to the node's console.
After establishing the telnet connection, the system prompts you for the login name and password.
Set the terminal type, based on the type of window that was used in Step 1.
# TERM=xterm # export TERM
The following example shows how to connect to a cluster node in a configuration that uses a terminal concentrator. A Shell tool has already been started by using an xterm window.
