Brocade FCX648 Blank Serial Screen



 I have recently got my hands on a Brocade FCX648 switch. However, I am having issues connecting to the switch through the management and console connections. Using PuTTy I attempt to connect through a serial connection with the correct settings flow control, com port etc... but once the terminal opens I get a blank screen which never drops into CLI.


I have tried resetting the switch, multiple BAUD settings, removing PuTTy default use of XON XOFF flow control, cable checks etc... but still have the same issue.


Can anyone suggest anymore trouble shooting tips?

All of the FCX community data was transferred to Ruckus.  Please take a look at their Wiki or Community at
