Connecting the DataPower Appliance

Connect both power supplies to the ac power by using the IBM cables that shipped with the DataPower appliance. Both power supplies must be connected to ac power, or the firmware will be in a failed state.

we use a PC running HyperTerminal and a USB-to-serial converter to connect the DataPower device to the PC.

1. Plug the DB-9 null-modem cable into the appliance.

2. Connect the USB-to-serial converter into the PC and DB-9-null cable modem into the serial port in the front of the device.

3. Configure the management network interface (mgmt) for network connectivity. Configure any of the   three other ports as well.

Management Port: Use the Management Port (mgmt) to provide Web-based access to the device

4. From your PC, click Start Programs Accessories Communications -> HyperTerminal to start HyperTerminal.

5. Create a connection. In the window that opens, in the Name field, type DataPowe X150. Select any icon and click OK.

6. Locate the power switch located at the back of the device and turn it on.

7. In the HyperTerminal connection window, you see a message indicating that booting is in progress. Wait for the login prompt.
