Brocade 7450 Mini-B plug driver

Hi Commmunity!

 

I have a Brocade ICX 7450 switch, it has a serial console port with mini USB cable (USB to Mini-B plug). I'm trying to connect to the switch but I'm looking that the cable is not recongnized in my laptop. Does I need to install a drive to recongnize this cable?

 

Thank you very much for your answers.

 

Best rgards.

Hi Alejandro,

 

This is the exact same problem I am facing now. The mini usb to RJ-45 cable is simply not being picked up on my laptop. It is not a question of it coming up as an unrecognized device, it simply doesnt show up. Hopefully someone will respond. Do let me know how it goes.Tks.

Hi Alejandro,

 

I also have a Brocade ICX 7450 switch, and I had encountered same situation you mentioned.
I was able to solve it with "USB-serial" cable. to be honest, I am still struggling to configure this switch.
You might already solve your situation, but I will write down the solution for my record.

 

Here is the connection layout...

ICX 7450 miniUSB port  ---  cable(miniUSB to RJ-45)  --- RJ-45 to female D-9  --- male D-9 (serial) to USB  --- your laptop.

 

I think you have to buy "serial to USB cable". It's not so expensive actually.

 

After that, you can see the serial port as "COM*" on the device manager window.

Then, you will be able to log in through "Putty" or some tool.

 

Best of luck.
