How to connect console port in wlc 4400 ?

HI, Here is a wlc 4400. I am trying to connect it through console cable with my PC. Unlike general router, the wlc has male console port and service port(looks like rj45 port). Do you think if i need an adapter which has an usb port and serial port(9 pin female port)? or do you have other option for this ? Thank you

You need to use a male-male serial cable.  You can use a USB dongle with a gender changer if you don't have a cable with the right ends.

Thank you for your reply. I got answer from Cisco as following. The following says it needs a "modular adapter (RJ-45 female to DB-9 female)" I do not know if it is Ok without the following adapter.



Required Tools and Information
You will need the following tools and information before you can install the controller:
CISCO console port cable (RJ-45 to DB-9) and modular adapter (RJ-45 female to DB-9 female) to connect CLI console and controller

The adapter is a RJ45-to-DB9 converter, so you can use the blue Cisco Serial-to-RJ45 cable.

If you have neither, use a male-to-male serial cable.

Both do the same job.

I do not have "RJ-45 female to DB-9 female" now. I hope to use male-to-male serial cable that you mentioned. but WLC console port is 9 pin male port. How to use male-to-male serial cable to connect PC with WLC ?  I imagine the male-to-male serial cable is like the link, right ?
