Hi,

I think that the only way is to configure
GSP LAN access and telnet to them.

You can access the GSP via telnet from the machine. There is no "hardware" way to connect internally.

And can you configure GSP lan from SAM?

No.

GSP is configured by one of two ways:

1) telnet to the gsp card if its on the network with a valid ip address.

2) Connect to the console and use ctrl-b to get the gsp interface.

#Connecting to GSP with internal port.
GSP internal port should be /dev/tty1p0.

Create the device file

#cd /dev

mknod tty1p0 c 1 0x010000

Since this allows unrestricted access to the GSP make sure to delete this device file when you have finished using it.

/usr/lib/uucp/Systems needs the following entry:

gspiport Any;5 gspiport,f 9600 - ""\r\d\r\d\r ogin:-BREAK-ogin:

uucp asswrd: uucp-BREAK-ogin: uucp asswrd: uucp

It needs to be exactly as shown.

/usr/lib/uucp/Devices needs the following entry:

gspiport tty1p0 - 9600 direct

When all of the configuration is done, you should be able to access the GSP internal port with the cu command:

cu -l /dev/tty1p0

To terminate the cu session, use ~. [return]

This will work only on GSPs having firmware version lower than a certain version.

No, you can't configure GSP LAN from SAM.
The only way is to connect a terminal or PC with terminal emulator via serial cable to GSP (MP) and configure it.

ctrl b on the console

You can configure the lan interface from there - then connect a LAN cable up - and voila - you have console access from your network.

Be sure to change the password.
