The instructions in this guide work for any networking environment and require a terminal device for connecting to the server's serial management port (SER MGT). If you have a networking environment running Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP), you can configure your network using the Ethernet management port (NET MGT).
To communicate with the SP, you need a terminal device, which can be a terminal, a terminal server, or a laptop running terminal emulation software. Set up the terminal device to communicate using 9600 baud, 8 bit, no parity, and 1 stop bit. For DTE-to-DTE communication, use the supplied RJ-45 crossover adapters with a standard RJ-45 cable to set up a null modem configuration so that transmit and receive signals are crossed over.
