To connect the host PC to the switch, use the supplied RJ45 (male) connector-to-RS232 DB9 (female) connector. Connect the RJ45 connector to the switch's Console port shown in ISW Console Port, and then connect the DB9 connector to the PC COM port.

Important

Using a different cable than the one provided with the switch may cause bootup issues.

Once the host PC is connected to the switch, enter the following terminal settings:

  • Speed (baud rate): 115200 bps
  • Data bits: 8
  • Stop bits: 1
  • Parity: None
  • Flow control: None

The pin assignment of the Console cable is shown in Console Cable Pin Assignment.
