this is going to sound really dumb, but I've forgotten how to connect and manage a switch if the console interface is serial and the other end is an RJ45. The switch I'm working on is a Brocade FWS 648G 48 port switch and it has a serial port as it's console interface and the RJ45 goes in my laptop - obviously this doesnt create a COM port ( Do i need some kind of converter to USB? ) Anyway, usually on older laptops I remember using hyper terminal but they took this away on windows 10. Just a question really on how any of you manage a switch like this ( im used to cisco where the console port is the rj45 jack and the serial end has a serial to usb adapter on and use putty). Again apologies for the dumb question, thanks in advance.
