Greetings, I'm trying to connect via serial to rj-45 to a Cisco Switch. I'm using the following:
-Windows 7 Professional computer that has a serial port
-serial to rj-45 cable
-Cisco Catalyst 2900 series XL switch
My Putty settings are the following:
serial line com3
stop bits 1
flow control none
I've tried to connect the RJ-45 to both the console connect and a port on the front and still not able to get a CLI.
I did find this example on youtube
He is using com3, where as Windows 7 Pro defaults to com1 and I'm not sure why he is using com1 or how to change it on the Windows side to com3.
