Console Port on AP-515 no response?

Hi,

I tried to use the console port of my new AP-515 Access points but my PC (win10) does not recognize anything if I plug in the USB Micro Cable to the access point.

Do I have to enable the console port somewhere ?

The AP run as Instant APs

That AP requires a special cable  .  Some have obtained it on Amazon.  Please see here:  https://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controllerless-Networks/IAP-345-USB-to-MicroB-Console-Cable/td-p/425764

In the same thread Onno Harms explains why.

Re: Console Port on AP-515 no response?

Sorry to ask, but making sure: did the customer install the driver, resulting in an active COM port when the cable is plugged in?
