Using the Command-Line Interface

This section assumes you have already performed the initial setup of Pulse One. For detailed information, see the Pulse One Appliance Getting Started Guide.

To connect the CLI:

1.You can connect to the CLI using one of the following options:

An ASCII terminal or emulator that can connect to the serial console. It must have the following settings: 9600 baud, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control.

A computer with an SSH client that is connected to the appliance Primary port (in rare cases, you might connect through the Auxiliary port).

2.At the system prompt enter the following command if the appliance resolves to your local DNS:

ssh [email protected]

Otherwise, at the system prompt enter the following command:

ssh admin@ipaddress

3.When prompted, enter the administrator password. This is the password you set during the initial configuration process.

Pulse One command line interface access can be gained only through the console port and SSH. The Pulse One CLI access is via SSHv2 and virtual terminal access (VMWare Hypervisor). No FTP access is required for configuration.

Login Banner: In Pulse One, an option is given to CLI when the admin login to Pulse One through SSH. Banners can be enforced when Pulse One is integrated via SAML auth with ICS. There are no configurable options to set up a custom sign-in page for web UI.
