In an attempt to make my network rack as easy to manage as possible, I am looking to connect the serial port of my PowerVault MD1420 to my DMPU108E KVM.
Currently, I can connect the USB mini port of the MD1420 EMM to my laptop, and I can initiate a serial connection through Putty. I also have a MPUIQ-SRL module for serial connections to the KVM. As seen in the linked doc, the serial module has an RJ45 jack that is detachable from the RS-232 plug.
My question is, for the purposes of a serial connection, is it possible to wire a USB mini port to an RJ45 jack, or are there additional ICs needed to convert this? Is it as simple as transposing a pin out diagram such as this for USB to serial, and this for serial to RJ45 (thus wiring the USB directly to RJ45)?
