A nice tip for those looking to SSH directly to their devices instead of using the GUI

avocentNow normally you’d click on the Serial Viewer and then you get into the device. But theres a quicker way to get this working.  Open up a putty session and assuming your admin account is still in the system, type admin:70xx@192.168.1.1

192.168.1.1 is the IP of the Avocent Cyclades and the xx means the port #. So in the above pic, if we want to connect to the port 2 NY-7K-CORE-1-SUP1, type in admin:7002@192.168.1.1 and your in!
