I am trying to connect a modem to my PortServer product with the RJ45-DB25 cable that came with the PortServer or PortServer II, and it is not working.
- The RJ45-DB25 cable shipped with the PortServer products is a crossover, or DCE, cable. This is provided to connect a terminal to the PortServer or PortServer II for the initial configuration.
- To connect a modem to a PortServer or PortServer II product, you need a straight-through, or DTE, cable. You can find the appropriate cabling pinouts and/or part numbers at the URL listed below.
