Question on setting up a Foundry Networks ServerIron XL

Posted on 2006-11-16

Hello,
     My workplace just aquired two Foundry Networks ServerIron XL's.  Unfortunately, these were refurbrished units, and did not come with any documentation.  I have found the information I will need to set these up, however, I cannot figure out how to get into the CLI interface.
     These boxes have console ports on the front of them, but I am unsure if I can use a regular serial cable to access them, or if I need a null-modem cable.  Also, I am unsure of the port settings for the console.
     These load balancers need to be set up SOON, so this is pretty urgent.  500 points to whomever can help me get to where I need to be with these.

Thanks,
Mike H.

Yasir,
     Thanks for the tip on this issue.  As far as the cable type needed, did you mean crossover?
     Also, as far as the manuals link, I do not have a Foundry support contract, and these units were bought second-hand from Network Liquidators, so I would have to pay for access to the manuals.

Thanks,
Mike H.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.
