How to use the Router Tool?
Once the Router Tool has achieved connectivity to the device, the below page will be visible. By clicking on the Get Router Information button, the device’s interfaces will be retrieved, displaying a real-time view of the router’s interface and IP addressing status:
By selecting the Command drop down menu, a list of available commands will be displayed. Select the command that you would like to run on the router:
In some cases, additional parameters is required to run the full command. In the below example, the command “show interface” was selected and “FastEthernet4” (from the above Router Information table) was entered. Click on Submit to run the command:
The output from the router will be displayed in the Command Response area of the Tool. The output can be viewed by using the scroll bar on the right-hand side or copied to clipboard using the Copy to Clipboard button.
It is possible to minimise the window, so that other tools can be loaded for the same service. Clicking on Close will exit the tool.
Click on Confirm to completely close the pop up window.
