IP ADDRESSING CHAPTER 5: IP ADDRESSING
5.3 Setting Parameters
5.3.1 Setting Serial Port Parameters
To be compliant with IT or other policies the console parameters can be changed from the
CLI interface. This is best done by setting the IP address and then telnet over to the switch.
Once connected using telnet, the serial parameters can be changed. If you are using the
serial port, remember to set the VT-100 emulation software properties to match the new
The serial port parameters are modified using the
set serial command with the
set serial [baud=<rate>] [data=<5|6|7|8>] [parity=<none|odd|even>]
Where <rate> = standard supported baud rates.
Changing these parameters through the serial port will cause loss of connectivity. The
terminal software parameters (e.g. HyperTerminal) will also have to be changed to match
the new settings.
To see the current settings of the serial port, use the
show serial command to query the
serial port settings as illustrated below.
ML1200# show serial
Baud Rate: 38400
Parity: No Parity
Flow Control: None
5.3.2 System Parameters
The system parameters can be queried and changed. To query the system parameters,
two commands are frequently used:
show sysconfig and show setup. Usage for both
commands is illustrated below.
The following example lists system parameters using the
show setup command. Most
parameters here cannot be changed.
