when I access a router or a switch (I dont' remember if it does it in firewalls as well) via the light-blue console cable, I have to restart the device.
I use Hyper Terminal from windows and I get this problem a lot because if I want to access the router via the console few days later, I can no longer get in. Access thru telnet/ssh is always good.
Is there any settings on the console line that prevents or perhaps freezes the console line after a certain amount of time?
Once again, I have to restart the router or the switch in order to see and access the prompt.
