Console conection using CISCO terminal server

Hi

 

First of all i would like to say that im able to conect with serial cable to the Console Port with my laptop.

 

The issue only occurs when i try to conect to the Console port via Cisco Terminal controller (TTY)

At the begining i thought was a problem with the values that Palo Alto recomend for this kind of conection (see below)

 

Bits per sec    :  9600

Data bits       :     8

Parity          :  none

Stop bits       :     1

Flow control    :  none

 

But after check and as you can see on below ouput the TTY that i use on the Cisco Device is with Values

 

show line tty 6
Tty Line Typ Tx/Rx A Modem Roty AccO AccI Uses Noise Overruns Int

Generally these terminal servers use RJ45 flip cables as the connection from the terminal server port to the port on the device and not ethernet cables.  But many also have custom pin out arrangements as well.  You should look up the cable requirements of your model device and confirm what you have is correct.
