Connect to an Indigo2 workstation
Hi all
Perhaps someone could be able to help me there...
I have just bought a refurbished Indigo2 workstation without screen... It is working

I have been given 

his IP (not a 192.168 unfortunatly)
The root password (great)

But now, how to connect to it ?
Of course, I have a hub with my internet connection, one laptop on windows 7 and another one in Linux Centos and other softwares like NoMachine, Xming, Putty and so on which already let me able to connect to my centos machin from my windows7 one

Then, which could be the way to connect in the same way to my SGI and play with it through Putty / Xming and so on ?

Thank you in advance
B

RE: Connect to an Indigo2 workstation
turn on the indigo2, make sure it turns on, a little chime should happen, and the green led on the front should be on

without a monitor is tricky, but assuming it actually boots all you need to do is hook up your laptop directly to the indigo2 via network/rj45 cable. Change the IP address of your laptop to be on the same network as the indigo2 (or example - say the indigo2 ip is 10.0.0.2, make your laptop 10.0.0.3 - this is hoping nothing really silly is going on with the netmask)

If that doesn't work your going to have to get a console cable
