Standard Brocade serial cable is DB9-DB9 just pins 2-2, 3-3 ,5-5 connected. Generic straight-through serial cable will have 7-7 connected as well and you would normally have to cut that. You are meant to get the serial cable with the Broade switch.

 As far as you having RJ45 on your Linux box I have no idea though, are you sure it isn't an Ethernet port?

Can't use that (well you can but you would have to get a plug to put on the RJ45 end to convert it to DB9 to plug into your serial port.

If this is the HP Brocade switch you bought you can use Ethernet to set it up, default IP address is 10.77.77.77 so just change your IP address to 10.77.77.1 and open web browser to 10.77.77.77. Username = admin, password = password.
