5170 console connection

Hi, 

 

I'm currently in the process of wiring together a RJ45 Socket to DB9 Female adapter for console access to the 5170.

 

I've tried the following (for a connection using a straight through RJ45)

 

DB9 port         Ciena 5170 port

 5                            4                    GND-GND
 2                            6                    Rx to Tx

 3                            5                    Tx to Rx

 

However, it's not working. Even switching the TX/RX around doesn't work.

 

Any advice would be appreciated!
