Unanswered Question

No matter what cables I try, I can not get into a 3005 CVPN - any ideas of what connectors I need?

Thank you

I have this problem too.

For the console of a 3005 VPN Concentrator you want a straight through serial (9 pin) cable - not the rolled cable that is common on IOS devices.

But I am wondering if you are talking about the console since the rest of the title of your question indicates E/FE. Perhaps you can clarify what the question is about?

1- Use Teraterm or SecureCRT terminal app,

2- Connect a DB-9 connector to the the console

port of the VPNc,

3- Connect a DB-9 connector to the COM1 port

of the PC where Teraterm or SecurCRT runs,

4- set the setting to 9600/8/1/hardware,

5- connect one end of the ethernet cable to

the db-9 connected to the PC. The other end

should be connected to the DB-9 connected

to the VPNc.

Now you will get a login prompt

Easy right?
