  • Thanks for the reply but there is no wiring diagram on either of those sites - or any of the related pages.

  • Hi Phillip,

    It seems like you are looking for instructions on where to plug in the serial cable. Please refer to the cabling guide for 8100, look under the Serial Cabling section at this link. There is also a diagram for all the network ports on the StorSimple appliance including the serial port under the Network Cabling section at the same link.

  • The reply marked as an answer was not.  I was not looking for "where to plug in the serial cable" and had already read the documents referenced.

    What I needed was a "wiring diagram", which means, to me, "which pin on the connector at one end of the cable is connected to which pin on the other end."

    I need to connect the serial port of the 8100 appliance to a terminal server.  Here is what I got from the helpful people at Seagate.  It is a wiring diagram for the serial cable supplied with the appliance:

    The DB9 female connector is P1 and the 3.5 mm connector is P2.

  • Hi Phillip,

    Great info thank you.

    There is no picture and there is no way to tell which pin of the 3.5mm Jack is which.

    The TIP of the stereo jack (P2) is considered to be PIN1 or PIN3 ?

    Thank you !

  • Hi Roberto,

    The tip of the stereo jack is considered to PIN 3 RX, the middle is PIN 2 TX and the base is PIN 1 GND. I am showing a schematic here. Please use it in conjunction with the pin table provided above by Phillips.

    Let me know if this helps, thanks!
