    Hi there,

     

    I try to connect to a brocade 300 via COM Port , but it does not work at all.

    I need this because of pw recovery of "root"

     

    Serial Settings are 9600,8,N,1 , flow control -> none as mentioned in the manuals.

    For terminal client i tried with putty and hyper terminal i also tried both local serial port with an older laptop and usb to serial converter.

     

    I also tried rebooting the switch , cold boot and so on

     

    But i do net get any connection ....!!

     

    Does anyone know how what the problem could be?? this is really wierd...

     

    Thanks in advance

    daniel

    make sure you are using brocade branded rs232 cable that was provided with the switch

    Daniel,

     

    -->> Yes sure , im using the standard brocade rs232 cable...

     

    you need the cable Kit with Part Number 50-0000176-01 and Connector 50-0000177-01

     

    should you have the right cable Kit, most probable COM configuration is not set properly.
