Cable unplugged?

Connecting a Brocade 2800's ethernet port to a known working ethernet port on a system(using a known working ethernet cable), computer reports cable unplugged. I restarted the Brocade, same problem. Then I looked at the port, while it is for sure wide like an ethernet port it only has two coppers connected? Which is probably why the computer reports cable unplugged. Any ideas?

Re: Cable unplugged?

Acura,Have they the cables connect direct from the MGMT Port to you Computer Ethernet/Card Port ? In this case you must used a Crossover Ethernet Cable.
