session through the Console Port and one in-band TELNET session.

VT-100 or DEC VT-100 (ANSI) terminal, or use a VT-100 terminal and configure
it to operate with these settings:

change the settings on both the terminal and on the switch. Change the switch
settings first, then change the terminal settings, and reestablish the console

Modify the switch's configuration
Read the event log and access diagnostic tools to help in troubleshooting
Download new software to the switch
Add passwords and other security features to control access to the switch
from the console, web browser interface, and network management
Out-of-band: Connect a PC or VT-100 terminal, to be used as a console,
directly to the switch using the serial cable that comes with the 5400zl

a readily available 9-pin to 25-pin serial cable, or attach a 9-to-25 pin
straight-through adapter to the PC end of the cable.
In-Band: Access the console using telnet from a PC or UNIX station on
the network, and a VT-100 terminal emulator. This method requires that
you first configure the switch with an IP address and subnet mask by using
either out-of-band console access or through DHCP/Bootp.
