RJ-45 to DB-9 Serial Port Adapter Pinout Information for a CTP151 Device

 

The console port is an RS-232 serial interface that uses an RJ-45 connector to connect to a management device such as a PC or a laptop. If your PC or laptop has a DB-9 plug connector pin, you can use a combination of the RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter (p/n 720-014126) supplied with the device to connect your PC to the CTP151 device.

If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 plug connector pin, you must use the Mini-USB console port on the front panel of the CTP151 to connect your laptop or PC directly to the CTP151 device.

Table 1 provides the pinout information for the RJ-45 to DB-9 serial port adapter.
