If your Redpark cable is not working properly try these troubleshooting steps below.
Power your iPhone OFF and then ON again. (Do not simply put the iPhone to sleep. Power it completely OFF and then ON.)
If the problem continues to exist…
Confirm that your iPhone/iPad detects the cable:
If the iPhone IS detecting the cable:
Check whatever app you are using to make sure that the communication settings (baud rate, parity, etc.) are properly configured. Check with the app developer if you have questions about the proper configuration.
If the iPhone is detecting the cable and the communication settings are correct but you are still experiencing a problem — perhaps the cable has developed a short in its wiring. If the cable is within the one year warranty please return the cable to Redpark to be tested.
If the iPhone IS NOT detecting the cable:
If you choose to email Redpark for assistance, please email “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
The Console Cable is designed to connect to the console port on Cisco networking devices. It will also work with certain other brands of networking equipment that have RJ45 console ports wired per the Cisco console port spec.
