I have recently Purchased a Silkworm 3200 from Ebay ( Sealed box ) .
I have got complete set as a fully sealed box.
I am using serial cable to connect to switch after post .
I tried using all the Com Port's listed in the Hyper terminal , but no luck
I have used below Hyper terminal settings to connect to switch
Bit rate : 9600
Data bit : 8
Parity : None
Stop bits 1
flow Control : None
I am using the Serial to Eathernet cable ( COM --> RJ45 )
Do I need any special configuation to do make Eathernet card to work as a COM port
if this doesn't work is there any alternative to configure IP to switch
Thanks & Regards

Default IP Address is 10.77.77.77
COM Settings you made are correct, have you tryed with another COM Port ?
is probable you have select any wrong COM port in you Computer.

I have tried using the above IP
I have used a Cross cable to connect to the switch and configured with the laptop nic with 10.77.77.77/8/16/24
but no luck unable to ping
What is the Cable that I am supposed use ( Cross / Strait through )
What is the Default Subnet mask ??
is there any way i can scan the Ip range or something like that ??
any help is appreciated
Thanks & Regards

--->>> I have recently Purchased ...../...... ( Sealed box )
the box included Original Brocade Serial Cable, this is the correct cable.
The cable have a Label with Part Number, post this here, I believe this begin with 50-xxxx
If the Switchis Brand NEW as you say,, 10.77.77.77 is the default IP Address.
Is you LAN IP Correct set, example 10.77.77.70 ?
Have you tried to test with another computer or check you COM Port ?

None of Pc's have COM Port SO , I am trying to use the Eathernetport of the Brocade Serial cable ( Com to Ethernet )
as that didn't work
I have connected the Eathernet port of the Switch to my laptop and configured my laptop with the IP 10.77.77.71/255.255.255.0
but unable to ping 10.77.77.77
My Serial Cable label : 50-0000083-01 REV.B Volex-OS 0409

Com to Ethernet Is not supported
--->>>None of Pc's have COM Port...
you need a PCI Serial Port Card cost less as 10$

Some cheap USB to serial adapter are out in the market as well. This is a bit smarter for a laptop compared to a PCI card.
This works fine for me.
You should try an ethernet hub / switch. Connect the LAN port of the switch and your laptop to the hub/switch.
The subnet mask set to 255.0.0.0 and try to ping 10.77.77.77.
If you have no success run a port scanner on your laptop to find the configured ip.
I hope this helps,

Thanks for the help,
I have purchased a USB based com port and connected to FC Switch .
after that I could see the boot messages in hyperterminal.
The default IP what I see here is 192.168.0.18 Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway : 192.168.0.1 Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
Once again thanks to everyone for help
