Just started studying for the CCENT and have purchased a 2610, 2611XM and 2950 to do some practice.
So far I have connected to all devices using the console port and a prolific based serial to usb converter.
I can connect to all devices using putty, however after approx 5 minutes all seem to freeze/timeout. Basically the console freezes and can't input or anything, or enter any thing etc. To reset I have to un plug USB and reload putty, which then brings me back to the devices therefore I know its not a device issue also as its the same for all 3.
I have tried, 2 diff PCs both with win7.
Tried tera term, and same thing.
tried new drives for usb to serial.
set the exec-timeout to inifinte on the devices
I have setup telent access and this work fine!
All i can think is that the console cable is dud or the serial to USB is?
Just wondering if anyone has had a similar issue or can help. Would a faulty cable cause this timeout after approx 5 mins? Thanks
It seems you have done everything possible to troubleshot the issue and the only thing that is left is anging the console cable and/or the USB to serial converter. I would suspect that the converter is bad, but than again you never know.
If you are going to replace the converter use a different brand than what you have.
