I'm trying to access the ACE via console port and it does not seem to respond. What type of cable should I be using.
Please explain the differences and how to check if i have the correct cable.
(Not: During fault tolerance configs, password apear to be mixed up and I'm not able to access via session, login incorrect.)
From the Administration Guide, Pages 1-1 and 1-2:
"You can establish a direct serial connection between your terminal and the ACE by making a serial connection to the console port on the front of the ACE. The console port is an asynchronous RS-232 serial port with an RJ-45 connector. Any device connected to this port must be capable of asynchronous transmission. Connection requires a terminal configured as 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity."
You need to connect this to a serial port on your PC/laptop. One of the standard blue Cisco console cables will do the trick.
