The user cannot connect to the console port of the VPN Concentrator 3005


To resolve this issue, perform these steps:

  1. VPN 3005 Concentrator has a DB9 connector. Use a straight cable in order to connect the COM1 or serial port on the PC to the console on this device.Cisco supplies the cable with the system.
  2. Start a terminal emulator (HyperTerminal) on the PC. Configure a connection on  COM1 with these port settings:
    • 9600 bits per second
    • 8 data bits
    • no parity
    • 1 stop bit
    • hardware flow control
  3. Set the emulator for VT100 emulation, or let the emulator auto-detect the  emulation type.
