Hello Mikrotik users,
I have a problem getting my serial console connection to work with my M33G RouterBoard.
I own a RB4011iGS+RM and a CRS326-24G-2S+RM, both of which have a RJ45 serial port which works perfectly. I use a Delock USB to DB9 adapter in my Windows laptop, with a blue Cisco serial cable. Usually, any device with a serial console via RJ45 just works with Putty.
The M33G has me stumped though. It has a DB9 serial console port which just won't work. I've searched on these forums and with Google and found this: https://serverfault.com/questions/97839 ... -rb4011igs
So I bought a Startech DB9 to RJ45 converter where you have to wire the pinout yourself. I messed the first one up, and did it straight through. Now I have another one, which I "rolled" (inverted the pinout), but still my M33G won't respond.
I've tried setting auto-baud under /port, and /system console set 0 disabled=no, but nothing makes a difference. I have another Startech converter under way, to try the crazy pinout referenced here: https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:S ... erial_port But I believe this is already the pinout that my blue Cisco cable is supposed to have internally, so I assumed I just need a regular or rolled DB9-RJ45 converter.
Can someone please point me in the right direction? My M33G board is a proof-of-concept. I want to order a whole bunch for my company to put them in the field, but I'm kind of hesitant to deploy a product where I can't use the serial console.
