Sun Serial Console HowTo

Cisco Serial Device (Sun Console Server)

There are 32 lines available for connection, but only 18 are currently hooked up. They are defined as:

ip host line50 2050 10.0.0.1
ip host line49 2049 10.0.0.1
ip host line48 2048 10.0.0.1
ip host line47 2047 10.0.0.1
ip host line46 2046 10.0.0.1
ip host line45 2045 10.0.0.1
ip host line44 2044 10.0.0.1
ip host line43 2043 10.0.0.1
ip host line42 2042 10.0.0.1
ip host line41 2041 10.0.0.1

ip host line35 2035 10.0.0.1
ip host line34 2034 10.0.0.1
ip host line33 2033 10.0.0.1

When you login, there will be a banner describing which line is associated with what machine. To connect to a line, simply type 'connect line33'. It will again ask you for the password in the spreadsheet, and then you'll be connected to the console of the Sun server. A couple of handy commands are:

Break back to cisco device 'ctrl+left shift+6' then 'x'
Send server a break signal 'ctrl+left shift+6' then 'b'
Show current connections 'who'
Forcefully disconnect a line 'clear line xx' where 'xx' is the line number.

After breaking back to the cisco device, 'discon' will disconnect the session you just came from.

The ip address of this device is indicated in the americanheart.xls spreadsheet on toaster, and is currently 10.5.21.180. If this is changed in the future, it will be updated in the spreadsheet.
