Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, due to the varied nature of user environments, detailed product support is beyond the scope of this FAQ.

Raritan has put together a fairly detailed support section for the Dominion SX console server line based on firmware version. Visit the page at: http://www.raritan.com/support/dominion-sx/ and open the node for your version.

The online help section for the most recent version can be found here: http://www.raritan.com/help/SX/v3.3.0/en/index.htm#5034.

Question: Can you connect a rollover cable from a network device console port directly to this Raritan?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, this unit can be connected directly to the serial console ports of network devices. A number of adapters are available to accomplish this. Here is specific information found in the Raritan SX quick setup guide:

"Important: Many Cisco and Sun devices have server ports with non-standard RJ-45 connections. Most can be connected to the SX with a "serial rollover cable." This is NOT a standard Ethernet cable or crossover Ethernet cable. If you have misplaced the rollover cable that came with your Cisco or Sun device, you can purchase one from Raritan (Part Number CRLVR-15 or CRLVR-1)."
