    Re: console port

    A console port is a port from where you can manage the router/swich using the blue rollover cable.
    You cannot assign an IP address to it.

    You can assign ip addresses to the interfaces like ethernet.
    To remotely manage the router you can configure telnet or even better ssh.
    When configured correctly you can use telnet or ssh to the ipaddress of the router.
