Serial Port Setup
Before communicating, the PC serial port must be connected to the Fibre
Bridge and terminal emulation software (Hyperterminal, or similar)
must be installed on the host. Configure the terminal emulation program
to use the settings in Table 3-1 on page 3-8 for the PC's serial port.
When initially powered on, the Fibre Bridge uses the default (or
previously set) baud rate during self-tests. After completing the
itself to the baud rate used by the host.
Serial Port Operation
The serial port on the Fibre Bridge connects to a terminal or computer
that is running a terminal emulator such as Hyperterminal on Windows
NT. The operator can then perform the following:
• Change the system addresses and address modes
• Check the results of the POST tests
• Change the operating level of diagnostic routines
The serial port cannot be used to transfer data to devices on the SCSI
buses or on the Fibre Channel loop.
An EEPROM inside the Fibre Bridge stores configuration changes.
Because the Fibre Bridge stores its original settings, it can be reset to the
original configuration at any time. See Table 3-1 on page 3-8 for the
default configuration settings.
If there is trouble communicating between the serial port and the Fibre
Bridge, contact an HP service representative.
