PROG - USB 2.0 to use with USB flash drive for backup

The DEBUG port is a standard Micro-A type USB port for serial debug communications to the controller. Use a serial terminal program (for example: PuTTY) to access the controller’s system shell menu. The system shell menu provides access to a few basic platform settings.

The default DEBUG port settings are 115200, 8, N, 1 (baud rate, data bits, parity, stop bits).
