How to setup an out of band telnet connection to a Router with Digi Passport?

Hello,

How to setup an out of band telnet connection to a Router with Digi Passport?

I can dial in with my out of band connection. I can see the menu to do different things.
What should I do to connect to a device from this CLI ? There is nothing on this CLI menu on how to connect to a device.

1. Network
2. Serial port
3. Clustering
4. Power controller
5. Peripherals
6. System status & log
7. System administration
8. Activate Passport Locator LED

Thanks,
Chendra

From the command line, issue the portaccessmenu or connect command. Example:

# portaccessmenu
# connect 4 <-- to connect to port 4

Thanks for the reply.

I don't see any option on how to a command prompt (through Console connection or through a port connection). This is what I get when I dial in.

Thanks again,
Chendra
