Do I have to use a serial cable to connect to a CE series switch to log in to it for the first time


When logging in to a CE series switch for the first time, you need to use a serial cable to connect to the switch. The CE6850HI, CE6855-48T6Q-HI, and CE6850U-HI switches also support the mini USB port. You can use a mini USB cable to connect to the switch for login for the first time.

How to log in to the device on AR routers for the first time through a console port
When you log in to the device through the console port, you need to install the terminal access software on the local PC (such as SecureCRT software) and set parameters of the terminal simulation software. After the login succeeds, you can configure the following parameters based on the requirements:
- Set the system date, time and time zone.
- Set the device name and management IP address.
- Set other login modes.
For example, after a user logs in through the console port for the first time, the configuration of remote login through Telnet is as follows:
1. Set the system date, time, and time zone.
clock timezone BJ add 08:00:00
clock datetime 20:10:00 2012-07-26
2. Set the device name and management IP address
[Huawei] sysname Server
[Server] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/0
[Server-GigabitEthernet0/0/0] ip address 24
[Server-GigabitEthernet0/0/0] quit
3. Set the level and authentication mode of the Telnet user
[Server] telnet server enable
[Server] user-interface vty 0 4
[Server-ui-vty0-4] user privilege level 15
