The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product. Learn more about how Cisco is using Inclusive Language.
This document describes how to retrieve the IP address of a network element (NE). For this, you must use a serial cable and connect to the RS232 craft interface of a Timing Communications and Control (TCC) card or Cross-Connect, Timing, and Control (XTC) card with a laptop.
There are no specific requirements for this document.
The information in this document is based on these software and hardware versions:
Cisco ONS 15454
Cisco ONS 15327
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.
Connect a serial cable to the RS232 craft interface of the active TCC or XTC.
Start Hyperterminal. In order to do so, select Start>Programs>Accessories>Communications>Hyperterminal on your desktop.
Set up the Hyperterminal with these details (on the basis of the instructions in the Cisco ONS 15454 and Cisco ONS 15327 documentation):
Terminal emulation = vt100
Bits per second = 9600
Parity = None
Stop BITS = 1
Flow control = None
Press ENTER. An angle bracket prompt (>) appears.
If nothing appears when you type : in the Hyperterminal window, select File>Properties>Settings>ASCII Setup from your desktop.
Check the Echo Typed Characters Locally check box under ASCII Sending.
If every character typed appears twice, remove the check mark.
