I must find some documentation for a Surecom EP-824DX-CS (24-Port 100/10M N-Way 19" Rach-Mount Smart Switch) in order to find the capabilities of the device, but the most important is the console port pinout (DB-9 male). Also, the device has some sort of administration method (telnet/http) ?

Have you tried contacting any of the vendors that still sell them? –  Beep beep Jun 20 '09 at 20:56
I couldn't find any web site for Surecom, and the switch seems to be out of stock on every site I could find. –  alexandrul Jun 20 '09 at 21:39

I found an FTP repository that has all their manuals: ftp://ftp.ral.ro/Public/Support/surecom/Manual/

More specifically, the EP-824DX-CS manual is split in the two following files:

Unfortunately it looks like the company no longer exists. If you are just trying to get into the admin mode I suggest you either try HyperTerminal through the serial port or the telnet admin. There is likely a reset button on the switch, hold that for a few moments and then let it 'boot' up.

If you are prompted for a password I would go through all the standard network device password lists. Most companies use 'admin' or 'password', or a combination.

It doesn't have any buttons, and I'm not sure what kind of cable is needed to connect to the console port. Thank you for the password list. –  alexandrul Jun 21 '09 at 10:16
A standard Serial Cable (RS232) cable is the norm for a 9-pin connector. Port looks like aggsoft.com/rs232-pinout-cable/images/9-pinout.gif, cable looks like kellycontroller.com/shop/images/products/RS232Cable.jpg –  Jack B Nimble Jun 21 '09 at 16:01
