I have inherited three Dell Powerconnect switches, which I was asked to put on my network which is running HP switches, VLANNED etc...
I managed to log into one of the switches and reset it (wish I hadn't bothered!) as now I cannot get access via the console. And thats the problem with all three, no console access is working.
I have downloaded the manual to the switches, followed all of the instructions to the letter. I have googled it to death, I have used multiple terminal emulators (Hyper terminal, Tera Terminal, Putty...) I have used a mail to femail rollover cable with gender changer, female to femail crossover, combinations of the two...............but nothing.
The cables worked fine on another HP switch which had a serial console port no issue.
The cables are fine as I have tested the pins and as stated above logged into other switches.
I access consoles on a regular basis but this one has me stumped
Anyone had the same issue?......
