    It was! It took about a week of back and forth email to the Lantronix tech support guy, that was why I posted the Pin-Outs. I did not want anyone else to have to deal with that one.

    I agree with you, for the cost, how can you go wrong, I personally had built a Serial Port Output Board (see original post) and $3.oo USB to Serial adapters off eBay (outta China), but this is so much nicer and way WAY cooler the USB cable.

    I now have 5 Static IPs in my house so I am thinking about putting the SCS1620 on the web, but I am changing a few pieces of hardware around once that is all done I will post new pics and look to putting it all on the web.

    Nice thing there is multiple people are supposed to be able to log in at once so getting help with something should be easy as giving someone a log-in name/pass.

    Very good point, never crossed my mind. Although, only one person is able to interact with the device. All other users can watch using the "listen [port]" command.

    My next goal is to try and get a package manager working. The only thing I can find on it, is a broken rpm install. Some one mentioned it was based off Debian. Now if we can get aptitude working we would be golden!

    Thumbs up HP pinout.

    Here is the pinout for HP 2500-2600 (DB-9 on switch).

    8P8C/DB9 -HP | DB9/8P8C -SCS1620 (DTE)
    (RTS) 1---------- 8 (CTS)
    (TX debug)2----- 6 (DSR)
    (TXD) 3---------- 2 (RXD)
    (GND) 4---------- 5 (GND)
    (DCD) 5-----------1 (DCD)
    (RXD) 6-----------3 (TXD)
    (RX debug) 7-----4 (DTR)
    (CTS) 8----------- 7 (RTS)

    I took a DB9 to RJ45 rollover cable, cut the RJ45 end off and repinned it as above attached that end to the SCS1620 and the DB9 to the HP switch. Works fine so far.

    So the HP ProCurve Switch has a DB-9 port not RJ-45?

    I made a cable of the same sort DB-9 to RJ-45 to go to the Console port of the SCS1620 with a DB-9 to the Serial Port of the Ole' Crappy XP laptop I have or the USB-2-Serial when using my 'newer' laptop. I had to make another of that type for my Cobalt Web Server, for that one I used a Null-Modem Cable (DB-9 on both ends) cut it off at the length I wanted and put the RJ-45 on the end to go into the SCS1620.


    Basically I did the same thing, I cut off one end of a RJ-45 Straight Through Cable and connected the pins appropriately to the DB-9 Female from 'The Shack'*

    Did you build a Console cable for the SCS1620? Or did you just SSH into the 10/100 port?

    Mine was kinda a mess, so I had to build the Console Cable so that I could see what was going on, when it boot, it had OLD firmware and a password I could not get out, so the Server got a re-flash.



    *That's what they want you to call it now.

    You can buy RJ45 <-> DB9 adapters for not much. Most of them come with the pins not actually in the DB9 shroud so you can configure it how you want. I've got a bag of the StarTech ones and they work fine. It means I don't need to have any special cables and just use a regular one.

    These things are way cool. Can they only be configured one time?

    @ZeroHunter

    Yeah, I use telnet/SSH to access the SCS1620 after a fresh flash. So its the same pinout for the terminal port of the CS? I'd like to have one as a backup solution.

    I can look it up, but the pin-ous are in the Appendix of the manual, that was how I built mine, as a note a CISCO console cable will NOT work.

    They're supposed to be one time only but if you're careful you can pull the wire back out again.

    I brought one and ended up with two. One of the unit power supplies are totally shot, ZeroHunter's solution of using a 1U power supply is good. The other unit I received has one power supply working, but the CF card is shot. Anyone knows what kind of format is used? Anyone can send me a image copy of their CF card?
    With all of that going on, I purchased the DIGI CM32, Digi CM - Secure, Intelligent and Easy Console Management - Digi International for $100.00 shipped from eBay. This unit is great, you don't need any special cable pin outs for Cisco. You just use a regular RJ45.

    OK I finally got around to taking my SCS1620 Lantronix back out of the rack and loading the CF card into a linux machine so I could get some of this information:



    I hope this helps, I will post it on my site about this also, I took some photos of the power supply I installed also, its not the prettiest but you will get the idea, give me a couple days to get the photos up.

    If someone can walk me through making an image of the card I will gladly do that and host the image off my site, I just don't have the skill set for that YET!

    Also will an image retain the formatting?

    Thanks for the info. I checked out your website. Great work. It gave me some insight on how to setup my lab rack.
    Keep up the great work.

    So i managed to score one of these new in box still amazingly for a low low price. I flashed the firmware since it wouldn't boot and got it up and running. However how do you actually connect to the console port. using direct, listen, and select all yield no results and i have made sure my cable is wired properly. I'm probably just doing something stupid however any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I am not sure what you are asking here, but look on my webpage

    c0op3r.com under the Cisco tab and you will see the wiring diagram on how to make the cables to connect the unit to the Cisco equipment, if that's not the problem let me know and I will do my best to answer you questions.

    Based on your screenshot above, just open a shell type:

    dd if=/dev/sdc of=MyImage.img

    where /dev/sdc is the device file representing the card. This will make an exact bit for bit copy of the entire card and save in the current directory. Here's some light reading on the topic. If it complains about permissions, type sudo dd if=...

    Yeah talked to a buddy that is a true linux expert, and I just have to take my Console Server back outta the rack and open it up and I will make the image.

    So i guess what im asking is how you have your ports set up. I have the cable pinned as you posted it on your site however when i use the select, listen, or direct command i get nothing.

    Also they already have image of the firmware on their website under firmware. Its the scs-4.4.6-elan.gz file. Its how i had to get my scs up and running.

    Lets see if this answers your question; Log into the Lantronix via the web browser, choose Device Ports, then Port Paramemters, you should see a screen like what is below, setup each port like that.





    Make sure that you have the DCE/DTE set to DTE if you are using my cable configuration. If that does not answer it, LMK and I will see what I can figure out for you. Can you Telnet or SSH into the devices, via the Lantronix?

    I reloaded the flash card. Brought up the box and worked awesome while I had it my office. I took it home, powered it on... Now it doesn't seem to keep the IP address that I assign to it. Should I reimage the flash?

    I got it to stick with it's IP. I found the config file, opened it up and input the IP.

    I'll need to make myself a simple crossover cable to connect it directly to my PC, or maybe I'll connect it up to my home router.

    I'm trying to terminal into it right now, for some reason I am unable to do so.... I have only ever been able to do this once (when i first reimaged the flash card). I have tried to use putty from windows and ubuntu, I get nothing back.

    EDIT: I just connected it to my home router, configured the IP and used to Telnet to reach it. Got it now.

    I decided to boot it up again last night and figure out why I couldn't reach it via a browser. Turns out that my browser wouldn't support ssl2 until I configured it... So it's finally up and running. Now just to stop being stupid and figure out the pin outs.
