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.
Here is a sample output of this procedure performed on a Cisco ONS 15327:
