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!
