Re: icx 6450 configuration

Be sure you are connecting to the correct console port on the switch itself. Also check (if using windows) that your COM port # is correct. Are you using a USB serial adapter? Go to "Devices and Printers" and check what COM# it has been assigned. If you are using straight serial, you need to make sure you are using the correct COM# in device managment.

Re: icx 6450 configuration

I know such problems.
It is related to the usb-serial adapter.
The best solution is a device with built-in serial interface ....
Please remove all usb-serial driver.
I have deleted the driver with a tool. A part of "COM Port Redirector Plug & Play" named  "portmap.exe" by the german company "W&T " (free download).
Then I have the usb-to-serial adapter reinstalled with the latest drivers and it works fine.

Re: icx 6450 configuration

I have seen this issue with a variety of problematic usb serial adapters.


I have never had issues with the USA-19HS that I have been using for 5+ years.


Be sure you're using the proper serial settings as well (9600, 8, none, 1, x-off).


Which version of code are you using? Is this switch part of a stack or mixed family stack?


Out of the box telnet is the simplest way to initlally connect to the switch. From there if you like youcan set the management port ip address and then you can access the web interface if you like.
