Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You need what’s known as a “rollover” cable to go from the console port; then a “standard” RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter on the end of it. Cisco normally provides one with each piece of networking gear; so if you know someone who works with network equipment, they probably have a stash of unused ones (typically light blue) kicking around…

Once the device is setup, standard Ethernet connectivity applies, and you don’t need that cable until the next emergency or new piece of gear arrives.
