PCS Serial connection - Pin outs

Post by Nic » 14 Feb 2012 12:32

Hi All,

I have an unconfigured PCS sitting in a MG in Nashville. I'm in the UK and need to talk the user through connecting his laptop to the PCS console port, so I can remote onto his laptop and give the PCS and IP - to be able to get to it over the corporate network.

First I need to get the guy a console cable - so my question is - any idea what the Pin outs at each end of the console cable need to be and is the PCS end and RJ45 or DB9 connector ?

Many thanks all for your time.

If you need to know the pin out of a DB9 and a RJ45 take a look here http://www.zytrax.com/tech/layer_1/cabl ... _rs232.htm

There should be RS232c to RJ45 connector with alcatel logo with your shipment attached (so you only need a straight patchcord) or a cable with RJ45 on one side and DB9 female on the other.
