Summary:
Cannot use Cisco rollover cable with NetScreen terminator

Terminator that came with NetScreen Using roll over cable, usually supplied with all Cisco devices Roll over cable doesn't work as console
Solution:

This solution applies to all versions of ScreenOS, and with NetScreen-204, NetScreen-208, NetScreen-25, NetScreen-50, and NetScreen-5200. 

The NetScreen terminator is set up so a straight through Ethernet cable can be used as a console cable.  Do not try to use a Cisco rollover cable with the NetScreen terminator, as it does not have the correct internal wiring.

If using the Cisco rollover cable, use the Cisco console adapter.  Both of these usually come with any Cisco device.
