Cannot get 'login' only echo on PortServer II

0 votes
Hello!

I have connected my PortServer II to a PC using a serial cable. When I type characters in the terminal application the Port Server just echoes them. I do not get a login prompt.

I do not use the crossover cable originally delivered with the device (I didn't get it (bought it used on ebay)).

If the reason is that the original crossover cable result in a changed behavior of the PortServer (echo vs. login) can anyone tell me the name for such a cable (one with a DB9 connector on the 'PC side') and where to buy it.

Thanks in advance!

Cable part number is 76000264. You can buy it from Digi directly.
You can also make your own. Pinouts can be located here:

One more thing, reset PortServer to the factory defaults. certain port settings on a PortServer will not generate login
