Putty not connecting to EX2200-C

‎10-03-2016 07:16 PM

right out of the box, I tried to connect to the Con Mini-USB port of the EX2200-C and into my USB port in my PC.

I configured the COM, the baud rate, etc. from Juniper's website , Youtube ( basically all the same ) but NO GO!!

All i get is a solid green cursor in a DOS like environment.

I spent 3 hours looking for answhers on Youtube - it appears all the Putty configurations are correct.

Then ( tho the explanation isnt clear) Juniper knowledge base mentions the RJ45 Con port is the Active port by default and the Mini USB port - passive.

So does this mean I MUST connect FIRST using the RJ45 port even tho i DON'T HAVE A DB9 (RS232) PORT??

If it's a requirement, do I need a RJ45 (Con port side)  to db9 female ( provided) and then a db9 male to USB ( the PC side) ????

Can anyone help??? So far Juniper wont help unless $$$ is spent on a contract

Hello,

This cable should get You out of this trouble

BUT - why bother if You can do switch config entirely via browser

The mini usb requires a driver that is not included with windows. The juniper page with the descriptions is here.

However they seem to have removed or locked down the driver download.

This is the original manufacturer download page.
