Connect to Cisco IR11101 Industrial Integrated Services Router

How to connect to this Cisco IR11101 Router? Do I need that special cable RJ-45 to DB-9 or could I just use an Ethernet cable to communicate to the unit? Also, do I need a specific software?

Re: Connect to Cisco IR11101 Industrial Integrated Services Router

Hello @EdwardMartinez31397 ,

either you use the RJ45 to DB9 Rs232 cable  to be connected to an RS232 to USB adapter (to be bought separately) or you can use an USB connection.

Follow the document below for initial setup

https://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/routers/access/1101/GettingStarted/78-101332-02A0.pdf

 

For the software you can use Putty that you can download for free.

When using the RS232 to USB adapter you may need to install it.

For windows os you should look in the devices and peripherals to check what COM# has been taken by the converter as it is not sure that it will be COM1.

For example in my case it is COM3.

Then when you use Putty you choice serial and you specify the COM# that you have found above associated to your converter.

 

Hope to help
