Connect to switch's console port through ethernet patch panel

Solution 1:

You should be able to connect the console port to the patch panel with a rollover cable.

You must use a standard straight-through ethernet on the other end - NOT another rollover cable.

If it's viable, it would be much simpler to configure the switch with a management IP and SSH/telnet access.

Solution 2:

Use a straight through cable from the console port of the Cisco to the patch panel, and then a rollover from the port in the wall to your computer?
