Location of Ports and Connectors

The WAVE appliance supports two Ethernet connectors and two Console ports on the front of the appliance.

Figure 1-3 shows the back panel ports and connectors.

Warning To avoid electric shock, do not connect safetyextra-lowvoltage (SELV) circuits totelephone-networkvoltage (TNV) circuits. LAN ports contain SELV circuits, and WAN ports contain TNV circuits. Some LAN and WAN ports both useRJ-45connectors. Use caution when connecting cables.Statement 1021

This section contains the following topics:

Ethernet Port Connectors

Console Port Connector

Ethernet Port Connectors

Connect a Category 3, 4, or 5 unshielded twisted-paircable to an Ethernet connector.100BASE-TXand1000BASE-TFast Ethernet standards require Category 5 or higher cabling.

The WAVE-594andWAVE-694appliance has two Ethernet connectors that are attached to the Ethernet controllers (seeFigure 1-5).The Ethernet controllers are integrated on the system board. They provide an interface for connecting to a10-Mbps,100-Mbps,or1-Gbpsnetwork and providefull-duplex(FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception of data on the network. If the Ethernet ports in the server support auto negotiation, the controllers detect thedata-transferrate(10BASE-T,100BASE-TX,or1000BASE-T)and duplex mode (full duplex or half duplex) of the network and automatically operate at that rate and mode. You do not have to set any jumpers or configure the controllers.

Note There is a third RJ45 connector on the front of the appliance (seeFigure 1-1).This is a console port. Do not connect this port to your network.

Console Port Connector

The WAVE-594andWAVE-694appliance has two console port connectors, serial andmini-USB(seeFigure 1-1).Use a console port connector to access thecommand-lineinterface (CLI) for controlling the WAVE appliance.

For information on connecting a console terminal to the mini-USBconsole port, see the“Connecting a Console Terminal” section on page 1-6.

Connecting a Console Terminal

The WAVE appliance has both serial and mini-USBconsole ports (seeFigure 1-1).These ports provide administrative access to your appliance with a console terminal or PC.

Note You cannot use both ports at the same time. If both ports are connected, themini-USBport takes priority.

Note When using themini-USBport to connect to aWindows-basedPC for the first time, you must install the Windows USB driver on the PC first. See the“Installing the Cisco USB Driver” section on page 1-6.

Cabling

The following cables included with the WAVE appliance may be used for connecting the WAVE appliance to a console terminal or PC:

USB Console cable—5-pinUSB tomini-USBTypeA-B

Serial Console cable— EIA RJ-45toDB-9

Installing the Cisco USB Driver

When using the mini-USBport to connect a Microsoft Windows based PC as a console terminal to the WAVE appliance, you must first install the Windows USB driver on the PC. Otherwise, the USB interface may not function.

The following Windows operating systems are supported:

WindowsXP—32-bitand64-bit

Chapter 1 Introducing the Cisco Wide Area Virtualization Engine 594 and 694

Connecting a Console Terminal

Vista—32-bit,Business edition

Vista—64-bit

Windows 7—32-bitand64-bit

To install the Cisco Microsoft Windows USB driver, perform the following steps:

Note Do not connect the cable from the Windows PC to the WAVE appliance until after the driver is installed.

Step 1 Load the DVD that came with your WAVE appliance anddouble-clickthe CUSBInst.exe file. The Cisco Virtual Com InstallShield Wizard begins.

You can also access the driver from the WAAS software download area of Cisco.com located at:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/pub/software/portal/select.html?&mdfid=280484571&catid=268437639&

softwareid=280836712

It’s located under release 4.4.1 and the filename is CUSBInst_Signed_18May2011.exe

Step 2 ClickNext. The Ready to Install the Program window appears.

Step 3 ClickInstall. The InstallShield Wizard Completed window appears.

Step 4 Click Finish.

Step 5 Connect the USB cable to the PC USB port and WAVE appliancemini-USBconsole port. Within a few moments, the Found New Hardware Wizard appears.

Follow the instructions to complete the installation of the driver.

Step 6 Once the installation is finished, the USB console is ready for use.

Note If the driver has been installed on the PC but does not get bound to the hardware, you can manually browse the driver installation query to the location C:\Windows\tiinst\. The newly attached hardware will appear in the Windows Device Manager as "TUSB3410 EECode Ser".

This solution also applies when connecting additional WAVE appliances to the same PC. Multiple WAVE appliances can be independently administered by console sessions on the same PC.

Note You do not need to reinstall the driver if you change to a different USB port on your PC.

Note If you happen to install the driver multiple times, each time the driver is installed the virtual COM port number assigned to the USB port gets incremented. This is expected behavior and may not get reset even if you uninstall the driver.
