Connecting to console¶
To connect to a Cisco console, you need the console cable. If you computer doesn’t have a serial port, you will also need a USB to Serial converter.
minicom can be used to connect.
$ sudo apt-get install minicom $ sudo minicom -s > select "Serial port setup" > Serial device: /dev/ttyUSB0 > Bps/Par/Bits: 9600 8N1 > save as dfl $ sudo usermod -aG dialout <your user> > now log out and in again $ minicom > Hit enter once, the "Switch>" prompt will pop up.
