I've got a switch I need to get into and troubleshoot. On the front it says Catalyst 2960G Series. On the back it doesn't have an RJ-45 Console connection -- It has a Serial DB-9 / DE-9 / COM / Whatever port! I have a cable that goes Serial-to-Serial and tried different Baud Rates and other settings to no avail. All our other switches (and all other Cisco equipment I've been on) use a Serial-to-RJ45 cable. What is weird is that the data sheets that I could find for this series of switch only has manuals saying to use a Serial-to-RJ45 cable provided with the switch.
Does anybody have any insight into this? Seen this before? Do I need a special Cisco serial cable?
More about the switch: It's got 20 ports plus 4 combo ports [Ethernet or fiber].
