Hello everyone, I am new on here. I am Davidson Mott, I am currently studying Computer Networking at college right now. 

I am setting up a small lab in my bedroom. I have a Summit 48 (Model 15000), I am trying to configure it, but every-time I try to use putty or Screen (on Manjaro), all I get is a blank screen on the terminal. Could it be the serial cable I am using? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00066HP2E/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 this is the cable I am using to try to configure my switch. Is there also a manual for this switch to? I want to configure some VLANS for my experimentation.

Hey Davidson unfortunately you need a null modem cable not a straight through cable. If you are in the US send me your address to prusso@extremenetworks.com and i will send you one.
