Logging in through the Console Port

You can use the console port on any switch to manage the stack.

If you connect to the master node, you can configure and manage the stack. If you connect to a non-master node, you can view node status and configure only a few options from the node to which you are connected. However, you can use the Telnet feature to connect to another node and manage that node as if you were connected to it (see Logging Into a Node from Another Node).
