Whenever I make a connection to the Cisco ASA 5505 through the serial console cable and Putty I get nothing but random characters displayed on the screen. I have checked with Hyperterminal as well with the same results. I have tried different baud rates suggested by Cisco. Any suggestions? This ASA is in front of a dedicated server that is colocated and out of my physical reach. I am having the company connect a new console cable, but I want to see if anyone else had any suggestions.
