Pinned topic External Serial Ports for LS20 or HS21?

‏2014-04-09T17:37:45Z |

Does anyone know of a way to get external serial ports added to one of the above blades? I know that it is an Ethernet connection to serial but am wondering if there is a way of getting standard 9-pin ports out of one of these blades, perhaps through an external interface of some sort.

 

Thanks.

    I do not know if the HS21 and LS20 are supported though.  I know it does work with the PS blades, but I don't know of anyone using one.

    Does not look like there is anything for the E chassis.

    I was hoping to find what amounts to a serial terminal server or something. Maybe I could make that work since I do have some sitting on the shelf.

     

    Thanks very much, again :)
