Re: Serial Over Ethernet Breakout Cable

hi there,

finally im able to post, there's some sheet to self-build some COM-port adapter with Ethernet Jack, it's handout'ed in those aruba seminars...

i can send you over this sheet if you want, but it's only a sort of SoE and has nothing to do with the PoE but works quite fine if you connect your USB-COM port Adapter with this special self-made adapter directly to the external powered AP , then you can use the ap commands directly .

SOE Cable

SOE cable pinouts are the in appendix section of indoor AP installation guides (attached).

Re: Serial Over Ethernet Breakout Cable

In addition, Microsoft commissioned Carlyle (a local Seattle cabling maker) to make an Aruba SPOE cable replacement (SPOE-3) but with very long cable ends. This makes using SPOE in the wiring closet a lot easier since you don't need to awkwardly hold the laptop up to the rack, etc. :) The cables with this are 6 feet (2 meters) long.


The part number (I think it's still valid) is:
MS-DB9F-2XRJ-006

Carlyle can be contacted here:

Re: Serial Over Ethernet Breakout Cable

anyone knows where to get this in germany, local spare parts store, i was able to successfully make my own cable but without the network pins, so serial connection to some AP65 works fine, but the com-port adapter is just a little bit "crappy" cause the pins of the female adapter got a little bit damaged while pull/push them in the proper row .. ;-)

i would like to buy just some SPOE cable with the mentioned connectors and im fine.

You should be able to order this through your Aruba account team or partner, the part number is CA-SPOE-ADAPT-3 for Aruba PoE, and CA-SPOE-ADAPT-4 for mid-span PoE.

That did it!!

Thanks for the hint about using the Cisco cable. That worked perfectly! I can now reset my APs.:)

Re: Serial Over Ethernet Breakout Cable




I want to do the same, I recrimped the cable, connected it to the ap and my laptop and nothing!
Do I need the power transformator for the ap (5V, 2A) so that this works?

Re: Serial Over Ethernet Breakout Cable

Yes, you need to provide power for the AP. The cable does not do that...
