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.
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.
