What are the correct session parameters for connecting to an ADX 1000?

Hi 

 

According to this article (http://community.brocade.com/t5/Design-Build/How-To-Connect-a-Console-Cable-to-Brocade-Hardware/ta-p/37039) there is an Ethernet console port on the ADX 1000 I am trying to setup, and it provides what looks like the correct baud rate.

The Ethernet ports I see on this device that are not part of the switch ports are three: one tagged Management, and two AUX ports stacked one atop the other.

 

Connecting to either of these ports returns either gibberish on the screen, or a question mark embedded in a diamond shape.

Are the 9600 8N1 session parameters correct?

I am using minicom on a Linux desktop, and I cann connect with these same settings to our ASA 5515-x and the resident 2960 switch without problems.

 

I hope someone can guide me to where my problem lies. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Problem was because I was using a Cisco console cable.

I switched to a Brocade-specific console cable and I was able to make a go of it.

:(

I only found that out because Brocade support stated it.

That was a difficult few days.
