Accessing Command Line Interface for NT5000 Switches
This tech note will explain how to configure a terminal emulation software and connect to the Command Line Interface (CLI) of the NT5000 series switch models.
N-Tron® Series NT5000 (All Models)
Switch Serial Port
N-Tron NT5000 Series managed switches have a USB standard Micro-B serial port to access the Command Line Interface (CLI). The USB serial port is located on the top of the NT5000 series enclosure near the power connector. The USB standard Micro-B serial port may require installation of a USB driver. If you need assistance with installing the USB Driver, please contact Red Lion Technical Support or click here.
The following configuration should be used to configure your terminal emulator application such as PuTTY, Tera Term, or Hyper Terminal:
Port Settings: 115200
Data Bits: 8
Stop bits: 1
Flow Control: NONE
Logging In (password protection)
Access using the switch command line is password-protected. Once you have the terminal program setup click Open. Press Enter to prompt for the username and password. The default credentials are admin for the username and the password is blank to login. Use your custom credentials in the event you previously logged into the device and changed the credentials from the default.
*Note, if you do not remember your custom credentials, please refer to the tech note below:
(Note that the COM port might be different than COM1 on your device)
You can now activate the commands for the switch. Commands can be found in the Software Manual for your device or by typing “?” in the terminal.
