Hi dear all,

I have a problem with catalyst 2960-24TT-L. When I connected the console port to PC and using hyperterminal, there is no response, even i changed the baud rate and other parameter in hyperterminal.

Could you have suggestion ?

Are you using the standard Cisco blue cable, or are you using one of those beige (off-white) DB9-RJ45 converters? If the latter, that can be the problem - they are not all pinned the same! The wrong one will give you a blank-screen, no response. In contrast, the wrong baud will often give you funny-character, unintelligible gibberish.

Also, make sure hyperterminal is configured to connect to com1 and that com 1 is set for 9600,8,none,1,none.

p.s. Check out Tera Term Pro - free console/telnet/ssh sw w/ (imho) a much nicer interface than hyperterm.
