ConnectPort LTS 16 MEI; Cisco Serial

ConnectPort LTS 16 MEI; Version 1.4.1 (82002228_J 10/21/2016)

Need to configure reverse SSH to the 16 devices.

I tried a straight through cable; no output
I tried a rolled cable; garbled output

Configured the ports as Console Management ports profile
Basic serial settings 9600/8/None/1/None

Tried the Enable DCD on 8-pin RJ45 connectors (Altpin)

Do I need a special pin out cable?

If so, is it something I can make myself or must I order from Digi?

Thanks in advance
