The appliance has the following ports:

  • An RS232 serial console port.
  • A copper Ethernet (RJ45) Port called the Lights out Management (LOM) port. You can use this port to remotely monitor and manage the appliance independently of the appliance's software.
  • A copper Ethernet (RJ45) management port, numbered 0/1. The management port is used to connect directly to the appliance for system administration functions.
    Note: The LOM port also operates as a management port.
  • Four 10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet ports numbered 1/1, 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4 from left to right. The four ports form two accelerated pairs, which function as accelerated bridges. Ports 1/1 and 1/2 are accelerated pair A (apA), and 1/3 and 1/4 are accelerated pair B (apB).
