Re: Serial Over Ethernet Breakout Cable

Hi Experts,

 

I recrimped the Cisco Console cable exactly as described, and connected it to the AP ethernet port and the serial to my laptop. Used the power adapter to power up the AP.

 

but then nothing!

 

Please help me if I missed anything.

Re: Serial Over Ethernet Breakout Cable

Thanks.

The Cisco Console didn't work. But re-wire the console according to the diagram works. :)

However, for some reason when I hit <Enter> on the console to stop the autoboot, it didn't work. The AP continue to boot as normal.

 

Any idea?

 

Thanks

Make sure you have NO flow control in your terminal program.

Re: Serial Over Ethernet Breakout Cable

You have to hit Enter before the countdown stops.  I would start hitting enter when the AP starts booting.

Re: Serial Over Ethernet Breakout Cable

Sorry, but that doesn't work either.

 

BTW, do you know if I can manage this AP through CLI/GUI without the management controller?

Re: Serial Over Ethernet Breakout Cable

You cannot.

 

Let's get to the point:

 

When was the last time that this access point worked, and what controller/AOS version are you trying to get it to work with?
