USB to RJ45 for RS232 serial comm


#1

I have an old AV receiver (Rotel RSP-1069) that has a console port for configuration via PC. The port is RJ45. Is there a single cable I can buy to plug it directly in with USB? Would one of these work?

Cisco USB to RJ45 rollover cable

Thanks!

I have used a similar cable on a Cisco Router.
Should work.


#3

Great, ordered one. Thanks for the assist.

I recently got a cisco one as well, and it has worked on all of the different (brands) of 2nd hand switches that I am testing.

That reminds me though, I need to see if it will work on my APC XS900.
