Hi Everyone,


How to I set SecureCRT/Hyperterm or other terminal emulator as the one that will be use to telnet a device from Device Center or Topology Services?


Many thanks.

For Device Center, it depends on which browser you use. If it's Mozilla/Firefox, it can be as simple as modifying the Helper application in the Preferences. Or if it's IE 7 or 8, you could modify the registry setting for the telnet:// protocol (see this post https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/670709), or alternatively replace the Windows telnet.exe binary with a shortcut to SecureCRT if you don't mind using the latter all the time.


For Topo Service in Campus Manager, you need to create a campusmgr.properties file as described in http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_campus_manager/5.0/user/guide/cmugfull.pdf, and keep in mind of http://tools.cisco.com/Support/BugToolKit/search/getBugDetails.do?method=fetchBugDetails&bugId=CSCsa80409 that afflicts CM 4.0 and Windows 2003 and Windows XP clients.
