First, thanks in advance for any advice, hints, clues, or answers any of you wonderful people are able to provide. Here is my question:
I've recently taken over as an administrator at a facility. My predecessor purchaced over a year ago, an NPS M-3050. It was racked, but never turned on, never configured, etc. All of the contents of the box in which it came are gone. I have no way of accessing the device. Basically, I'm looking for a way to find, or more preferably build, a console cable so that I can access the device. Look as I may, I cannot find pinouts or any real information as to how this can be accomplished.
It also occurs to me that there may be a default IP address, username/password, etc. for access this device via ethernet. If anyone would happen to have a suggestion on resolving this issue or can point me in the right direction for documentation, I would GREATLY appreciate it. Unfortunately, the documentation I've found mentions none of this.
The cable you need is a straight through serial cable, not a null modem.
The default settings for your terminal program (puTTY, Hyperterm etc) are 38400 baud, 8 data bits, 1stop bit, no parity. (This is for the M series, the I series is 9600 baud.)
Default username and password if it's never been configured is admin, admin123
