Unfortunately, you can't build your own cable as the adaptor is not passive. You need to order one from Aruba. Same goes for RAP-3WN, AP-103.

The part number for this cable is:

 

   AP-CBL-SER

 

This is mentioned in the ordering guide but might not be very clear from the pricelist.

ah it's active, ok so some electric/circuit is inside. ok good to know , sorry. well anyways price of 75dollars is quite annoying . well most of the time a reset is working fine with pin-button but i have one RAp155 now and would like to know why it's not booting and so i normally use console access to see whether ap-boot shows something

Re: Pinout serial for RAP-155P

The adapter cable converts between TTL signal levels (AP side) and RS232 signals (console side) and draws power from the AP.

 

While I agree the (list) price is high, it's definitely worthwhile to order one of these when deploying any of the APs that have this interface (RAP-3, RAP-155, AP-103, AP-103H, and more to come).

Hi...i am a new user here.In my case I can find the pins for the serial on the ap. My problem that I don't know what is the right orientation to connect the cable, because there is no sign on the pins what I can use for the right connection. By the way I tried to connect the with the two possible orientation but I can not see anything in the putty (serial, speed 9600). I am using Serial to USB converter because my laptop has no serial port but there is no problem with the normal RJ45 console ports, only with this special pin-based serial connection.So this is my question, what is the magic for the right connection?
