How to connect VPN3000 to 2511 Terminal Server with Breakout cable?
I searched around, but couldn't find the answer to this:
I've configured a 2511 router as a terminal server that I'll have dialin access to should something on the network break when I'm away. I've connected it to most of my network equipment, except I can't seem to get the VPN 3000 working. Please help!
I created an RJ45-to-DB9 adapter with the following pinout, but it didn't work:
2511-RJ45 | VPN-DB9
CTS 1 | 7 RTS
DSR 2 | 4 DTR
RxD 3 | 3 TxD
Gnd 4 |
Gnd 5 | 5 Gnd
TxD 6 | 2 RxD
DTR 7 | 6 DSR
RTS 8 | 9 CTS
I believe I've labled each pin corrently on both sides, as per what documentation I could find, but it doesnt' seem to work. I know the VPN300 crosses its transmit and receive pins to allow you to use a straight through serial cable when connecting to a PC, so I believe this layout should work...but it doesn't.

Thanks for your help, however are you sure you used a rollover on that specific hardware? (VPN 3000).
Anyway, for anyone interested, I just finished setting up a terminal server that connects to 4 normal Cisco consoles, 2 Nokia consoles, a VPN 3000 and a CSS 11000 console. I finally got all the pinouts right with a custom serial adapter and a custom CAT5 cable. If anyone would like the pinouts, let me know, I can forward on the Excel document I made.
