I picked up a FAS3170 and for the life of me can't seem to get onto the controllers.
I tried a serial connector from MAC USB and only get blank screen so I am obviosly doing something wrong. I tried two adapters so I am not sure what I am doing there. I tried the serial.app from decisivetactics.com to see if a gui could help me but failed with that one as well.
I plugged the management ports into the switch and tried to hit the default IP addresses
|Management Port||Controller A||Controller B|
They didn't respond at all.
Maybe the previous owner didn't reset anything.
Can the networking settings be reset?
Pardon my lack of knowledge on this topic, but I am stuck.
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

Thanks for the response.
I tried 3 different brands and finally got one that worked.
I'm using the plugable brand db9 to USB adapter and Serial.app.
For anyone who wants to know this might save a few trips to radio shed.
9600 baud and vt100 display. That got me in there.
I pulled the default IP addresses from:
I guess it's e-series but figured the FAS model would be the same.
I got in eventually so I guess this is closed down.
