Cant Connect Pix 506 through serial console
Posted on 2004-04-22
I am attempting to connect to my pix 506 firewall through a straight through cat5 cable connected to a rj45/db9 converter connected to com1 on my server machine.
I have hyperterm set to com1, 9600,n,8,1,hardware (I have tried com2 as well) and when hyperterm opens with those settings it says connected at the bottom of the screen, but I do not receive any data from the firewall. I tried restarting the firewall and waited a few minutes, but I dont get any response after a restart either.
Can someone provide me with some insight as to why it might not be working?
P.S. I tested the cat5 cable with my lantester and am getting green lights on all of the wires
