    Hi,

    I made an rj45 to db9 adapter using the pin-outs in the digi manual, then used a regular rj45 cable and it connected. Cisco console cables won't work. This will you'll also be able to connect to the command line via serial port as well, most if not all of it is the same as on the default ip address for https.

    Yea, I was using a console cable plugged into a usb adapter at first. That didn't work and the manual said to use an ethernet cable plugged into a db-9 adapter and that's what I did and it worked like a charm. I used a different computer so I could plug it directly into the serial port also.

    We probably bought it from the same guy, mine was in Dallas also and I literally got it the day after I bought it. Couldn't have been more pleased with my purchase.

    I was able to get mine working with a crossover cable to the Ethernet port(after I reset it to factory settings), and to my laptop...of course I had to change the network settings on my laptop to be on the same network as the default IP for the CM32. Yeah, I pretty much had mine the next day as well..

    Anybody got a list of supported cards for these? The link in the manual http://ftp1.digi.com/support/documen...90000301_G.pdf does not seem to work for me.


    Compatible PC Cards

    All compact-flash cards work with the Digi CM unit, but not all serial modem,wireless LAN, or regular LAN cards do. To see a list of compatible cards thathave been tested with the Digi CM unit, visit the Digi support site at
    http://cm.digi.com.


    EDIT - googling got me to this list - very short LOL

    http://www.digi.com/lp/discover/pccard

    two wireless cards from the list on ebay

    lot of 26 Cisco AIR-PCM340 Aironet 340 Series Wireless Lan Adapters, if he would just sell singles - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=310362928485

    these are only $8 + s/h (ordered one of these since the wpn511 I first purchased isn't on the list, doh!)

    As an alternative, there is an ethernet port that you can use and just plug it straight into your internet router.

    Of course I am looking at this specifically for wireless because I don't want to run a 50ft cable to another location

    My lab work in progress, the 1924s were my first purchase (only paid $20 for the pair) but they ended up having cat-os/menu driven vs. ios. So ignore those, tomorrow my 3640 should arrive, and later this week 2 more 2950-24s.

    Dude...nice lab pics. I need another rack that size too so; I'll have to get back on ebay.

    Web interface? Can I get a picture, and I assume it's HTTPS?

    Here is the screen where you can connect to each console port via the https web interface. It opens a java console session to the port when you click on the little computer terminal icons:

    Very nice! The more I think about it though, the cost of leaving my Routers and Switches on all day would get very expensive.

    Detected PC card : Unsupported Card

    Model : Agere Systems Wireless PC Card Model 0110

    eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

    " Proxim ORiNOCO Laptop Wireless WiFi PC Card PCMCIA " It shows Orinoco 802.11b SILVER, but not WORLD... so it's not supported. I wish Digi would show actual MODEL numbers ...like 8421-WD etc...



    This is going to be interesting trying to find a card that works--

    I actually have the old Orinoco Silver card sitting right here on my desk from my old laptop. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it possible to upgrade the firmware on those to match the Orinoco Gold settings?

    EDIT: Yes, I remember that's exactly what I did years ago...

    Hmm, I have a laptop here with PCMCIA slots. I'll google it, if you any direct links for this, post it

    Just for the fun of it, I ran a Nessus vulnerability scan on the CM32 (for PCI DSS), and here is a brief summary of the results:

    Number of vulnerabilities
    High 3
    Medium 48
    Low 121

    Most had to do with telnet, so I turned it off. It also says that OpenSSH needs to be upgraded from v4.2 to v4.3.

    Updated the firmware today to the latest version. It took less than 5 minutes.

    Wow, the updated firmware introduced a few more things to look out for. Since I turned off TELNET, all it has to complain about now are several concerns with the OpenSSH version 4.5 that is now installed with the firmware 1.9.5, and it is still talking about weak signing of the SSL certificate. I guess I could reduce the errors by shutting down all ports but the ones needed for console connectivity, but then again, I'm in my lab.

    Number of vulnerabilities
    High 33
    Medium 269
    Low 150

    Update - the Orinoco card I've purchased would not update it's firmware, not exactly the same model.

    Purchased a Cisco aircard that's on the compatibility list for $15 Downloaded new firmware for the CM32 box, will play with that this week.

    Is there a way to connect a computer to this if you don't have a serial port on your computer? I don't think even any of my old laptops have a serial port on them. LOL

    Yes there is. Please read back through this thread, specifically my posts about use of a crossover cable.
