I have a Cisco PIX 515 Firewall that I am trying to reset and utilize on a new network. I got the console cable (rollover cable with RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter made according to Cisco specs), however I am getting nothing on the screen of the Hyperterminal, which is configured to 9600bps, data bits: 8, parity: none, stop bits: 1, flow control: none. I also tested it with another console cable from our ISP with same results.
Re: Having trouble connecting to Pix 515 via Console
Can you verify that your console cable is working by using it on another Cisco device, like a switch or router? That way you can eliminate the cable. If this 515 was used elsewhere it's possible that someone set the console speed to something other than 9600. I've done that in the past to speed up xmodem transfers to devices. Hit all the usual suspects - set your terminal emulator for 19.2, 56K, 115.2K..
Also, if the 515 was ever used in failover mode and was the standby firewall you could have some problems accessing it via the console port.
