Connect Aurora Console to Nera?

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Shawn Laemmrich, Sep 29, 2003.

  1. Does anyone have the pin-out for making a cat-5 cable to connect an
    Aurora Console server to a Sun Netra? I currently have 2 in-line
    adapters which do the change-over, which isn't exactally ideal.

    Console --------Aurora-----DB25------Netra---------Netra
    rj45-db25 F-F rj45-db25

    It should be easy to make a cable that does the trick instead of the 2
    adapters but I can't seem to get one to work the way I want.

    As a side note, has anyone else noticed their aurora being "fussy"
    about the cableing? I've had times where I made a standard cable,
    hooked it up, and had it not work. Tested the cable with a cable
    tester (it passed) re-hooked it, and it worked.

    The Netra's docs will give the pinout of the Netra's RJ45
    connector, and the Aurora's docs ought to give the pinout
    of the Aurora's RJ45 connector.

    Or alternatively, you can post the pinout of the Aurora and
    the model of Netra you have, and some of the folks on this
    newsgroup (including myself) can suggest the cable wiring
    that should work.
