A Supervisor engine on a Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series can run router software if an MSFC or MSFC2 feature card is installed. Each card (the supervisor and msfc card) have their own console port used to configure each card.



The MSFC / MSFC2 cards however do not have an external console port for you to plug into and configure. Console access is made through the same console port that is on the Supervisor engine. To switch to the console port on an MSFC or MSFC2 you need to issue the "switch console" command from the Supervisor engine prompt. This will switch the console to the MSFC / MSFC2. To get back to the supervisor engine console you will need to type "CTRL C C C" (that is CTRL KEY + C - 3 times).
