Where are you located - I've got one you can have...I don't use it any
more I have the direct attach console on mine and Ethernet for
Telnet..and it works perfectly..
I'm happy to go thru my console setup with you...my old dev box is a 170
at V5R4 - the console is an old XP laptop - used for nothing else I
hasten to add.
I put a USB converter on the serial end of the console cable and it
works ok(didn't have a serial port I could use on the laptop)
I would be better if we could get the console working without the twinax..
I'm looking to replace the dev box this year with a new power box as a
couple of my clients are now using 7.1..
