    Re: Hyperterminal to cisco pix

    Q.I need to establish a console connection with my Cisco Secure PIX Firewall. What kind of cable should I use?

    A. Use a DB9 to DB9 null modem cable, available from most computer shops. Sometimes the Cisco Secure PIX Firewall ships with two DB9 to RJ-45 adapters. If you have these adapters, connect one to the Cisco Secure PIX Firewall, and the other to the serial port of your PC. Use a rollover cable (not a crossover cable) to connect between the two RJ-45 adapters. Set your HyperTerminal settings to N81, no flow control, 9600 baud. If you still have trouble, check your PC COM port configuration and verify it is setup and works properly. If you are confident everything else is setup properly, test it on a router or switch and see if you get a prompt there. Refer to the PIX documentation for your PIX software version for more information. From that page, select Installation Guide, and then select Installing Interface Cables for detailed diagrams and instructions.
