Console Port Connector Pinout on ACX7100 Routers

 

The port labeled CON on the front panel is an RS-232 serial interface that uses an RJ-45 connector to connect to a console management device. The default baud rate for the console port is 9600 baud.

Use a cable with the pinouts described in Table 1 to connect an ACX7100 to a console management device.

Note

If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 plug connector pin and you want to connect your laptop or PC directly to an ACX7100, use a combination of the RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter supplied with the router and a USB to DB-9 plug adapter. You must provide the USB to DB-9 plug adapter.
