By default, every Opengear device enables login on a local serial console port with the following port settings:
- Baud Rate: 115200
- Data Bits: 8
- Parity: N (None)
- Stop Bits: 1
- Flow Control: None
You may wish to connect your Opengear device's local console to a laptop or another console server, e.g. for initial configuration by logging in as: root / default
This article covers reconfiguring the local console service (agetty). Refer to this article to locate and physically connect the local console port.
Reconfigure console using web UI
- Login as root or an admin user
- Click System -> Dial -> Serial Console or Serial DB9 Port
- Select a Baud Rate and Flow Control
- Click Apply Modem Dial Settings
Note: Models without a dedicated local console port also need Serial & Network -> Serial Port -> Port 1 -> Local Console Mode set (this is set by default).
Reconfigure console using the CLI
- Login as root or an admin
config -s config.console.speed=115200 config -s config.console.flow=None config -r console
.. where flow is one of None, Software or Hardware.
Note: Models without a dedicated local console port also need the following set (this is set by default):
config -s config.ports.port1.mode=console config -r serialconfig
To print Linux kernel messages on the local console, login to the CLI as root or an admin user and run:
config -s config.console.debug=on config -r console
