OverviewAll CX switches are supplied with a Bluetooth USB Dongle to enable easy initial setup with the CX Mobile App.
You can also use the Bluetooth connection as a console port. This is easy with a mobile phone, but not so obvious from a Windows notebook computer.
The aim of this post is to show how to setup and use the supplied Bluetooth USB dongle to provide a console connection.
1. Use Bluetooth on the Windows notebook to add a new Bluetooth device. In the default state, the broadcast ID will be switchname-serial (where the switchname is the CX family number, eg 6200)
2. Go to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections, right click on the Bluetooth Network Connection and View Bluetooth Network Devices
3. Locate the CX switch, right-click Connect using > Access point
4. The Bluetooth Network Connection should now be active.
5. You can check the assigned IP address - the switch IPv4 is the gateway address. IPv6 is also provided.
6. Access the switch using your favourite SSH terminal emulator! Access to the GUI also works (although I am not sure if that is the case when it is at defaults). [This switch now has a config and a new name.]
CX6200# sh run int mgmt
CX6200# sh run | in ssh
ssh server vrf mgmt
