I was wondering if you have training somewhere on your site for the setup and uses of a Digi Portserver Ts8. I have a Cisco lab and recently purchased a used portserver but I have no clue how to start. Can you help or point me in the right direction?
Setup a Digi Portserver Ts8
@teddi009x I also have a terminal server. Mine is an ioLAN brand but it's basically the same concept.
First thing I did was the cabling. You have to make sure you get the correct pinout. I see from google that your server has RJ45 ports so more than likely you are going to have to make your own cables. I was lucky because my box has the rs232 pinouts printed on it.
So for the cisco side of the cable, that info is all over the internet.
Now what you have to do is find out how your terminal box is pined.
According to the pdf I found
digi cable guide
This is what you need to do
Now it's time for the configuration. I didn't really have time to look over the user guide in depth but basically look at chapter 5, this tells you how to set up baudrate and whatnot. These settings need to match the cisco standards for connecting which are :
8 data bits
1 stop bit
here is the userguide I found
hope this helps. Post back with any progress you've made. When I was setting up my terminal server it was quite a journey. Check out my struggles at the cisco forums
