CAB-OCTAL-ASYNC=

Who can tell me how long this cable can reach?

I want deploy a terminal server to control all my routers and switches. Because there some larger one, for examples GSR and 7513, so I want to know if there are four or five frames, what shall I do?

Thanks and best regards,

Ben

Re: CAB-OCTAL-ASYNC=

RS-232 is rated at 50 ft. for 9600 Bps.

Without testing, this is as far as you can count on for an async module. The specification is conservative, so it is worth testing longer runs. The longest I have ever tried was 1000 ft, but I would not count on duplicating this, especially if the line is critical.

Regards;

Doug
