Redirect Output to serial port
HI it's me again.
I need to redirect console output to my serial port, so what i did was check the box at Systems > Advanced > Serial Terminal, reboot it . then i connect from my laptop which has a Serial-to-usb converter, but nothings happen no output.
i connect with putty "COM6" and 9600 bd, i thougth it was my converter so i prove it with a UTM ahnlab, but it does work.
What else i can do?
I can't speak to serial to USB converters, but in a serial to serial connection a null modem cable is generally required.
does the serial link work on a other device ?
Did you enable the com port(s) in bios ?
I tried it also with a USB-SERIAL adapter <->Nullmodem cabel and with CuteCom it works.
Well actually the serial port it's enabled on bios, i did connect to another device few weeks ago i mean i use it with linux to connect to a cisco and it does work.
How many serial ports do you have on the box? Are you sure you're connected to the right one?
Make sure it's actually a null modem cable you're using, not a Cisco-style console cable.
Otherwise it's just as simple as plugging in, loading PuTTY or your terminal of choice, and latching onto the correct serial port at 9600/8/n/1
I have just one port, and well..i did connect with a roll over cable and does work right away with serial-to-usb pot… well i'm gonna check out with some null-modem cable.
OK… Thanks to everyone.. it was my cable . Now it works ;D
