Looking for documentation on Avocent ACS1 Console server
Posted on 2010-11-29
I've recently purchased a second hand ACS1 Avocent Cyclades Ethernet to serial port console server (one serial port only). I kept looking for documentation especially on the Avocent site but I couldn't find any. I even posted a question on their public forum but didn't get a reply either. I understand that it might be an old product but then i suppose there should be some kind of manual or getting started guide somewhere.
My most urgent need right now is that when logging in via the ethernet port the login sequence keeps asking for a radius server and I want to remove the radius authentication and just login local.
Eventually it times out and logs me in, but only after about a minute of trying to login via RADIUS.
Next, I couldn't even get the lone serial port working as the ts_menu option shows that it sees the serial port but when I select "1" to connect, it immediately says access denied or something to that effect.
thanks in advance for any help.
