Hi everyone. Dumb question for NEWB here.
I can't figure out what I need to be able to configure our new MX2820. I am having issues connecting to the SCU.
I have a DB9/ USB to serial adapter and access to Cisco cables, Avaya cables etc but I believe I have to access the SCU via the CRAFT port.
What adapter do I use? Is there a special cable we have to buy to access the management interface on these?
Sorry, Im used to connecting to Cisco/Lucent/AVAYA switches and routers. I have never had to connect to an ADTRAN MUX before.
I need to be able to configure the unit with the network IP and management IP.
Thanks for your help!
The MX2820 SCU craft port is a female DB9. If your serial cable has a male DB9 connector, it can be plugged directly into the SCU without any adapters. The out-of-box default for the port is 9600 8-N-1. If your serial connection works with other devices but not the MX2820 SCU, try other baud rates.
