Cisco to Adtran Console Cable Conversion (Hint it could be on the lab).

1. Adtran Quick Start Guide

2. Since we are given the pinout of the female and "NOT" the male, we have to invoke the power of inverse deduction aka the XOR and use the opposite of what the given is...

3. The pinout they give us is as follows:
==========================

1 GND
2 RTS
3 RXDATA
4 DTR
5 TXDATA
6 CD
7 -
8 CTS

4. Next we need a Cisco Console Cable's Pinout:
==================================
1 CTS               Black
2 DSR               Brown

3 RXDATA       Red

4 GND              Orange
5 DND              Yellow
6 TXDATA        Green

7 DTR                Blue

8 RTS                Gray

We need to flip the RX and TX if we are going to make this thing work.

5. So we get this for our efforts:
======================
1 GND           Orange

2 RTS            Gray

3 RXDATA   Green

4 DTR            Blue

5 TXDATA    Red

6 CD              Brown

7 -                  Yellow

8 CTS             Black

6. The default password of the Adtran Atlas 550 is.... password

7. Or you can pay $19.00 for the Official Adtran Console Cable.
