Hi,


Setting up a 2509 for oob console access, and am seeing large numbers of overruns:


OOB-01-SYD#sh line

0 CTY - - - - - 0 0 0/0 -

I 1 TTY 9600/9600 - - - - - 0 0 0/0 -

I've tried a different octal cable, but still seeing overruns.


Then on a 2960 switch connected via console to one of the octals, I see large number of overruns also:


#sh line

Tty Typ Tx/Rx A Modem Roty AccO AccI Uses Noise Overruns Int

* 0 CTY - - - - - 0 2 0/30755582 -


What would be causing this, and is there anything I can do(Config-wise) to stop the overruns - As "sh run" on a connected switch stops after about 17 lines (If I reboot the 2509, it will allow correct console access to connected switches for approx a day before becomming unusable again)


Thanks in advance.

Hello John,

There are some commands that may need to be added.


Hope to help

Thanks Giuseppe - I believe I have found a solution.


Enabling software flow control on the connected switches line con 0 has stopped the overrun number increasing(Well for the last few hours anyway)
