Hello,

I just got a TS-473. :-) What did you use to connect to the serial console?

Regards,
Gary

Hi Gary,

> What did you use to connect to the serial console?

You have to build a cable by yourself. See the attached photos.

What's your problem and you need the console cable?ImageImage

Hi Peripc,

My TS-473 is brand new and under warranty so no issues yet. :-)

I'm just building my toolkit if and when I have problems as I tend to keep my technology for a long time.

As laptops and mother boards are no longer coming with DB9 serial ports, I would probably swap the DB9 for a RJ45 to use a serial port to USB adapter like what I use for my Cisco POE switch's console.

Thanks!
