i have a problem with 2 fibre channel switches. I dont know the IP of these but i want to connect to them for managing purposes. I tried to connect via USB -> Serial
and used Putty with these settings:
When starting the operation, nothing happens in the console. I tried the cable with an other switch from an other company, and it worked.
At the front is a reset button, but nothing changed when i pushed it.
I am working at an university for my professor and he hass less clues than me in this case :smileyvery-happy:
Solved! Go to Solution.

when it comes to the cable, according to the manuals, the required one is the following:
Null modem cable — An asynchronous RS-232 null modem cable is required to configure product network addresses and acquire event log information through the product’s serial port. The cable has nine conductors and DB-9 female connectors.
so make sure, that it is the same type.
The putty settings are just fine, so I would check the cable.

Thanks for you reply :)
Yesterday i just found out that there is a cable type like this ^^
I tried it today and it worked :D
I wonder why the other switch which isnt from EMC doesn't work with an asynchronous cable thou.
