Got a second hand EMC DS-200B but can't seem to access it from the serial port. Web tools and telnet work fine to default ip. I didn't receive the original console cable so I am using generic 9 pin serial at the moment which I use to connect to all other serial equipment just fine. I am using the recommended serial settings baud rates etc. It does connect using the serial but there is no txt displayed in the window. I can disconnect so I know it connects but nothing can be seen. Let me know if I missing something please.

I'm not sure I can get the original cable. I currently have a 9 P/N usb to serial male to double sided female to switch serial male. Are you suggesting I need a usb to serial female straight to switch serial male?

I used a different serial cable and I can now access the serial console port on the switch fine. I am using usb to serial male to (correct) double serial female to switch serial male. So usb to serial does work as well! The switch serial port requires straight (or extension like what I use) serial cable with a female DP9 connector. Only pins 2,3 and 5 are supported. Hope this helps others.
