Console and the rp2470

I have connected through a SUV cable to my laptop to connect to the console.And then I start the hypertermal and unable to connect to it either using com2/com3/telnet.

You might be able to connect a null modem cable to your windows based laptop and use hyperterminal to gain console control of your system.

The system has a lan console as well which is a better option

Re: Console and the rp2470

Hi Steven,

I do not have the IP address of the GSP Card...

Re: Console and the rp2470

if you are connecting to the MP via the console, you might have to use something other than the hyperterminal. I have a few machines where hyperterminal doesn't work. I ended up using tera term.

Re: Console and the rp2470

That gives me a clue...

But when I connect to the server remotly... the session gets disconnected every 10 minutes and I will have to reboot the server.

looks like some time out issues...

Actually I noticed the pins of the A5191-63001 cable were bent...

replacing it resolved the Issue
