Pinout for Sun Box to Bay Console Server

By jjdarg ·
Would any one know what the cat-5 pinout scheme would be for a connection between a Sun Netra T1 server and a Bay Networks Micor Annex XL console server?

Pinout for Sun Box to Bay Console Server

CAT5 cables are wired/crimped in two categories. The straight cable or the normal cable has the wiring same on each side. You use this cable when you are connecting a machine to a hub/switch port.

Corss-over cable is used when you connect a machine to another machine directly, or a hub to another hub/switch.

For a neat wiring diagram of CAT5, see "http://www.activeelectronics.com.au/cat5/cat5.html".
(Use the AT&T standard colour code)

Straight Cable: 1-2 3-4 5-6 7-8 (On both ends)
Cross Over cable: 3-6 4-5 1-2 7-8 (On one end use this combination, on the other end use the normal combination).

Hope I have made things clearer here :-)

Ahh, there's the rub, we've tried both straight and crossover cables (and double-checked the cables independently on other connections) but we still can't seem to get any communication between the SUN box and the Bay Console server, which leads us to believe there's something funky about connecting to the Bay box. And as Bay is no longer around, I can't find any info on it.

You might like to try asking tech support at http://www.netgear.com if they have the Bay pinout scheme. Netgear operated as a subsiduary of both Bay and then Nortel until 2000 when it was spun off as a separate company.
Failing that, maybe a call to Nortel might help?
