Console connection to a Brocade Silkworm

Hi everyone,

New to Brocade devices, so please bear with me.

I've been tasked to audit/ammend fibre connections going into our onsite Brocade EVA SAN Switch, all I have gleamed so far is it's a silkworm ! SLKWRM0000410.

I am trying to console connect into it using a standard Cisco "blue" console cable using the following 9600,N,8,1

Nothing appears via my hyperterm screen, I guess these handshaking values are incorrect, can someone advise or point me in the right direction

Many Thanks

Re: Console connection to a Brocade Silkworm

Hi, in which EVA would this be installed (based on this we might be able to figure out what kind of switch it is).

Some details about how to set up the serial connection on a B4100.

Looks like you need a straight-through cable.
