When setting up a console connection to a Cisco router from a PC, using some form of terminal emulation software, are there certain settings that must be configured, such as baud rate (eg. 9600), 8 bit, no parity, and so on ?
Yup, and I believe you gotten most of the defaults. (You didn't note flow control; believe off usually works.) Do note, however, the console can also be reconfigured. Which can be a problem if they have been changed from the normal defaults.
BTW, setting a higher baud rate, if supported, can be very helpful if you need to load an IOS image via the console.
