Help with console server

Hi, ALL!!!

Friends, I have a problem with my Cisco Router 2610XM. I configured it as Console Server with ASYNC module. And all my Cisco device works perfectly, I mean that it's console port connected with ASYNC module on 2610, and now my company buy HP ProCurve and I want to connect it to my Console Server. I find pin-out of

console port ProCurve and make a adapter db-9 rj-45 and connecting it to 2610 but it is not worked.

In pin-out of ProCurve said that "Data Terminal Ready" "Data Set Ready" does not used.

Help to connect Cisco with ProCurve, my

brain is broken!!


Re: Help with console server

Thats why you should only use genuine Cisco equipment! :)

Procurves use two different pinouts for thier console conections "Straight Through" RS232C serial (pin 1 to one, 2 to 2, etc) AND cross-over aka "null modem" RS-232C serial.

Why not a linksys? Did the HP rep stop by purchasing handing out free pens ?

My chief by HP because his friend works in that (HP) company. :))

In HP ProCurve 5406 pin-outs of console connector is "null modem" and with computer works good, but with 2610 no.....
