I have some 2620 routers and 2950 switches that have Console Ports that are serial. However my HP PC w.Win 7 dosent have any serial ports. I am looking for a USB to Serial converter that will allow me to access the console ports so I can configure these devices. I've read many old posts and still havent found a solution. Is it true that none of these cables work? Has anyone found a solution?? Anything that will work on XP? (also have XP PC's).
How about a RJ45 to Serial?? How about a PCI Serial card? Has anyone tried these other options? I cant believe Cisco hasnt developed a conversion cable to use with their Console Cables????
Thanks for your reply. Can you tell me which brand you used? I have also read many posts saying that even tho some cables will work to get connected to the console - the ctrl - break sequence wont work. Also were you using XP or WIN 7?
hi diane i have 1 of these adapters that u are asking about think mines a generic make called HL-340(ebay) on win 7 32,i have no problems with mine but not sure about the control break sequence will try it out later and let u know,but i have had no probs doing control shift 6x to switch between ports on my access server or any other control commands.
