TitleWhat kind of console cable to use for 6740T?
Question
What kind of console cable should you use to connect to a mini-usb console port of the 6740T?
Environment
  • VDX 6740T
Answer
There are two types of console cables which can be used to connect to the mini-usb console port of the 6740T:

1. Mini-usb to RJ45 console cable
Mini-USB (Male) to RJ45 (Male), 8ft Ser., Brocade Console Cable, PN50-1000122-01

2. Mini-usb to DB9 console cable -- Serial to RJ45 port Adapter  -- Rj45 cable

Additional notes
If you have DB9 port on your PC then directly connect mini-usb to DB9 port.
If you don't have DB9 port, then you can use a serial adapter.
Connect one end of the serial adapter to the DB9 and other end will be connected to RJ45 cable on the other end.
