2.1 Connecting the System Management Terminal
This section describes the forms of system management terminal connection with the system control network. For practical connection methods, see "2.2 Logging In to the XSCF Shell."

The forms of connection of the system control network are classified into the following two types according to the connected port.
  1. Serial connection
    A serial cable is connected to the serial port.
  2. LAN connection
    A LAN cable is connected to an XSCF-LAN port.
Usually, the system management terminal with a connection to the serial port is used to make the initial settings of the XSCF firmware. Upon completion of the XSCF network settings, either a serial connection or LAN connection can be selected.

The next sections describe the features of each type of connection.
