When the configuration is completed, CXTool will help you transfer it to your CX device, using an IP connection or a serial port of your computer. The steps needed to configured a CX device are as follows:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Create a new configuraiton or edit an existing configuration. Generate a configuration. Download the configuration. Verifiy the script. Start the device and view the results.

Its appearance is slightly different for each device type but the same fields are set in each of them. The modified CX configuration can also be saved in a local file. it is recommended to always save the CX configuration in a local file and keep this file in a safe place. Note that even if the database is sent to the CX device with the configuration. This panel is used to set the type of hardware present in the CX. Once the learning process is done. the user can modify the CX configuration as if a local CXTool configuration file was opened. See the “Download Configuration” on page 2-22 for more information. The default community string (“public”) is put in the AdminCommunity field automatically: if the community string in the device was changed. CXTool can also learn the CXTool configuration from the CX device itself. 2-3 . If a new configuration is selected in the Product Configuration panel. For a CX900s/ CX950e/CX960e.CXTool User Interface CXTool will also detect the hardware present within the CX. The learning process will be successful only if the CX device was previously configured using CXTool and if the CXTool database was sent to the CX with the configuration. clicking Next will bring you to the I/O panel for the selected (or learned) device type. When learning hardware is performed (Serial or IP).
