Establishing a console connection to the Gateway Appliance requires either a direct connection or an SSH connection. Instructions for both are contained in this document.
To establish a DIRECT CONNECTION to the device you will first need to connect a monitor, keyboard, and mouse directly to the Cloud Services Appliance.
- Next boot the device if it is not already running.
- Once the interface loads click ALT and F2 to switch pages.
- Next right click and select "xterm". This will load a text interface or console.
To establish an SSH CONNECTION you will need an SSH utility such as Putty or SecureCRT. FYI - Putty is a free download.
Instructions for establishing a connection to the device using Putty are contained in the article below.
