Installing the Series 2300 and 2500 Switches
Installation Procedures
If you want to operate the console using a different configuration, make sure
you change the settings on both the terminal and on the switch so they are
compatible. Change the switch settings first, then change the terminal
settings, then reboot the switch and reestablish the console session.

Connecting a Console

To connect a console to the
switch, follow these steps:
If you want to continue with console management of the switch at this time,
see the next section, "Getting Started With Switch Configuration" for some
simple configuration steps, and refer to the Management and Configuration
Guide that came with your switch for more detailed configuration informa-
Connect the PC or
terminal to the switch's
Console Port using the
console cable included
with the Series 2500
switch. (If your PC or
terminal has a 25-pin serial
connector, first attach a 9-
pin to 25-pin straight-
through adapter at one
end of the console cable.)
Turn on the terminal or
PC's power and, if using a
PC, start the PC terminal
two or three times and you will see the copyright page and the
message "Press any key to continue". Press a key, and you will then see
the switch console command (CLI) prompt, for example:

console cable supplied
with the switch
PC running a terminal
emulator program, or
a VT-100 terminal
