GSP connection



I have a gsp connection to an HPUX RP4410 server running HP11.23. The ip address of the GSP is pingable but I cant connect to it. Is there a way of resetting the GSP from the unix root user command line?


$ cd /dev
$ ls -la *GSP*
crw-------   1 root       sys          1 0x010080 Mar 18  2010 GSPdiag1


Kind Regards,


Mark Parsons.

Re: GSP connection

GSP access was added then quietly removed a long time ago. However, a reset may not fix it. You may have a bad subnet mask or gateway. Try telnet from an adjacent machine on the same subnet. If that doesn't work, a trip to the data center will be required (along with a serial terminal or equivalent laptop).

Re: GSP connection

What does it mean "but I cant connect to it"?

Wrong user/password or no answer at all?

Do you want to restart the MP or restore factory defaults?

BTW, the "GSP" is called "MP" in this system.

Hope this helps!

Re: GSP connection

Hi Mark,

You may check the configuration if it is ok, by connectinga a serial console and  MP> LS  command.

Secondly you can do a reset to the GSP physically from teh back of the server, using a pen tip . And then try again.

Re: GSP connection

What application/protocol are you trying to use to connect.  In the older systems SSH was an extra cost option, and most of them only accept telnet connections.


Re: GSP connection

So where you able to connect?


Re: GSP connection

Hi Mark,


Accessing MP
Execute the following steps to access the MP.

Please login to the server from SYSTEM CONSOLE( The monitor/keyboard attached directly to the server) Or LAPTOP /Desktop should be conncted to the Server console port )

1. At the system console prompt, type CTRL B

2. Enter the  Login and Password( Username = Admin and Password= Admin)

3. The screen will display: MP>


Example:At the MPprompt>: type PS press enter


4. At the MP> prompt: type CO, and press enter to return to the console screen.



MP Soft reset : MP>CM>XD  then  R , this command will  help you to reset the MP


Manual MP Reset :  Prese the MP Reset Button - Located rear side of the server.

Re: GSP connection

Hello Mark,


If you are looking for the command to reset the GSP from unix shell you can try


#stty +resetGSP < /dev/GSPdiag1
