Access to the server via serial console cable

Hello guys,


I need your help to figure out what's the problem when i try to connect my laptop via serial console cable to the rx2620 servers. I have tried both serial port A and B and with the 9200 bits and 19200 combinations but no luck.

Any idea ???

thanks a lot for your help.

I don't think the ARP method is possible because I am directly connected to the server via a crossover cable. Correct me If i am wrong.

I do not think so ILO has a default IP, server has to be configured for IP during installation; of course if your server has ILO hardware.
