The Console Port and Basic Connection

The console port is a serial null-modem connection used to configure the PIX. Most models, such as the ones mentioned here, use an RJ-45 connector, whereas older models use a standard DB-9 connector. You can use HyperTerm or other ANSI terminal emulation applications to connect to the PIX via the serial port on your PC.
