What Cable Does Cisco Switch Console Use?

Cisco's routers have RJ45 or DB25 based DCE/DTE consoles and AUX ports. You can connect to these ports using a terminal (DTE) or modem (DCE). In either case, you need to have an RJ45 cable: an RJ45 to USB or RJ45 to DB25 or RJ45 to DB9 connector.

The console port uses an 8-pin RJ-45 connector. If you did not order a console cable, you need to provide an RJ45 to DB9 adapter cable to connect the switch console port to the PC console port.


USB to RJ45 console cable, directly connected to any USB port on a laptop, can be connected to a Cisco console port without an adapter. It is applicable to Cisco console ports such as Cisco 1000, 1600, 2500, 2600, 3600 series routers, Catalyst 3560 switch pins, etc

1. USB FTDI FT232R chip+RS232 shifter.


2. Supports Android, Win 7, Win 8, XP, 2000, Linux, and Mac OS, and is used for CISCO Huawei Router Switch/Microsoft (HCL) authentication. It is compatible with Windows and does not require a CD, as the driver is part of the operating system distribution.


3. Support hardware flow control for implementing Cisco interrupt sequences.


4. RJ-45 DTE Pinouts RTS(1)、DTR(2)、TXD (3)、GND(4)、GND(5)、RXD (6)、DSR(7)、CTS(8)


5. The pin output may not match other devices because there is no pin connection or standard RS-232 on the RJ45 8-pin modular connector.


6. Both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems are supported
