What kind of cable is required to connect to the Console on a Linksys SRW2024 switch ? ( I've lost the original cable )
I use the following settings: Speed 38400, 8 bits, no parity, no flow control and stop bits 1
I have tried a serial cable, no go.
I have tried a null modem cable with partial handshaking, no go.
I have tried a null modem cable with full handshaking, no go.
For the null modem cables, if I use it to connect between computers using hyperterminal it works very well. What I type on one computer appears on the other computer's screen.
However, I can't get anything out of the switch. I've tried pressing Enter repeatedly, resetting the switch with the Console cable on, etc.
Is it a special kind of cable for the console ?
