Connecting to the Mobility Master or Managed Device

This section describes how to connect to the Mobility Master or Managed Device to use the CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions..

Serial Port Connection

The serial port is located on the front panel of the managed device. Connect a terminal or PC or workstation running a terminal emulation program to the serial port on the managed device to use the CLICommand-Line Interface.
