    Hi Sir,

    I realize that this topic has been discussed before but I am literally
    upto the wall with my attempts. I am turning to the forum after my
    futile attempts to connect my PowerBook G4 to a 2521 Cisco routers
    Console port.

    My setup is as below:

    PB <--> USB port <--> USB to Serial Cable <--> Serial-to-DB9 adapter
    <--> Rollover cable <--> Console port

    My connection settings are:
    9600 baud
    8 data bits
    No Parity
    1 Stop bit
    No flow control

    Symptoms after this connection:

    The ZTerm screen stays absolutely blank.

    Please help!!

    Thank you for your time.
