MSL6000 FC Card:can't connect via serial/IP

Hello,
Situation:
working FC Card inside MSL 6000 in configuration MSL <--> Windows Server (not configured by me)
Description:
I have to connect MSL to SAN network so as I know I have to reconfigure some port etc. options
Problem:
Can't connect to any way: serial/WEB(no ping to 1.1.1.1, no DHCP talk
Im trying to reset but I'm not sure how (though I have manual - there is no description) I pushed reset button for 5-10 second - no result.
In my opinion FC card has default config indeed.
3 day "fighting" with this, googling, reseting, making serial cabels, push 7 times space and 7 times enter etc.
One thing: when I connect serial than power MSL I can see some "trash" on console screen, nothing more.

Thanks for advice.
Regards
Bartek Wojtyczka

if you see some "trash", you have probably the wrong speed.

Hope this helps!

another way is to ping "router" if it is alone on the network, this is his name, the ping will report you the actual IP address

IIRC the default serial speed is 115200.

Hope this helps!
