Requirements for using other interfaces to configure and manage FibreBridge bridges

You can use the combination of a serial port, Telnet, and FTP to manage the FibreBridge bridges instead of the recommended management interfaces. Your system must meet the requirements for the applicable interface before you install the bridges.

You can use a serial port or Telnet to configure the bridge and Ethernet management 1 port, and to manage the bridge. You can use FTP to update the bridge firmware.
Note: The ATTO FibreBridge Installation and Operation Manual for your model bridge has more information about management interfaces.

You can access this document on the ATTO web site by using the link provided on the ATTO Fibrebridge Description page.
