I recently acquired a 3005 that was supposed to be working. And in all fairness, it seems to be. The status light is yellow while it boots and a few seconds after turning it on, it goes to solid green.
I have tried everything I can to console into this unit. I used TeraTerm with a USB to serial adapter and a straight through serial cable with the settings suggested in the manual and I get nothing. Is there something I could be doing wrong? Is there any other way I could try to test this unit? Is there anything else you guys can think of to try?
Any help is much appreciated. This has frustrated me to no end. I have tried mutliple computers, multiple cables, multiple com ports. I'm fairly positive I'm doing something wrong, but I have no idea what.
Finally got it! Ended up just making a straight through cable. The cables that I thought were straight through were not. Made one with two RJ45 to DB9 adapters pinned out to standard serial on each end of a cat 5.
Thanks for posting back to the forum and telling us that you found a solution to the problem. And thanks for reminding us that sometimes it is good to go back to basics - is that cable really straight through?
