Command Conventions

This section describes some things you might need to know before using the commands to
configure the hub. If you are familiar with these conventions, you can skip this section.

Enter commands by typing the text of the command at the configuration prompt and
then pressing the Return key.

There are two configuration prompt levels:

The guest-level prompt is the device name followed by an angle bracket (>):


The administrator-level prompt is the device name followed by a pound sign (#). To

reach this prompt, the user (usually the system administrator) must enter a password
with the enable command:


Hub> enable

Password: ******


There are two editing modes provided by the configuration program—normal and
enhanced. For more information about the enhanced editing mode, refer to the
terminal editing command in the section “Editing Commands” later in this chapter.
The following editing commands can be used on the command line in either editing

— Backspace erases characters to the left of the cursor.

— Delete erases characters to the right of the cursor (this may be different, depending

on the terminal emulation software that you are using).

— Ctrl-C cancels a command prior to pressing the Return key.

— Tab or Ctrl-I completes a command name based on partial input.
