D-Link DFE-2624ix Config IP address via hyperterminal1. Connect serial cable to port1 on computer and to rear of hub into the Diagnostic RS-232 port.
The Diagnostic Port
The diagnostic port on the rear panel of the master hub is used to establish a
connection with a device to allow in-band or out-of-band management of the
DFE-2600 series hubs stacked with it. The console device connected to the
diagnostic port can be a terminal (or a computer running terminal-emulating
software) or a PC running TCP/IP TELNET.
Diagnostic Port Connection
The diagnostic port is an RS-232 DCE interface. To establish a physical line
connection with an RS-232 serial port (DTE) on a PC acting as a console, all
you need is a straight serial cable, as shown in the diagram below. Note that
a DCE-to-DTE connection requires a straight serial cable, not a null-modem
You can use the diagnostic port on a DFE-2600 series master hub to connect
a VT100-compatible terminal or a computer running an ordinary terminal
emulation program (such as the terminal program included with the Windows
operating system). In all cases, your terminal parameters will need to be set
¨ VT-100/ANSI compatible,
¨ Arrow keys enabled,
¨ 9600 baud,
¨ 8 data bits,
¨ No parity,
¨ 1 stop bit.
