Connecting to the Console Port

Connecting to the VGA console is identical to connecting any computer to a monitor. Just connect the VGA cable (DB-15) between the Netgate appliance and the monitor. Use USB or PS/2 keyboard and mouse as applicable to your hardware.

Note

If your system has both USB 2.0 (black) and USB 3.0 (blue) ports, use the USB 2.0 ports, as USB 3.0 is not supported in earlier versions of pfSense.
