Console Port Connector Pinouts for the PTX1000

The console port (labeled CON) 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.

Table 3 provides the pinout information for the RJ-45 console connector. An RJ-45 cable and an RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter are supplied with the PTX1000.

Note

If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 male connector pin and you want to connect your laptop or PC directly to a PTX1000, 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 male adapter. You must provide the USB to DB-9 male adapter.
