minicom to Cisco console port
I am trying to connect to a cisco router console port using minicom.
I have the cable connected to com5 on my laptop which is the usb port.
I have a USB-Serial converter to a Cisco rolledover cable.
This works fine with hyperterminal on windoze.
I am using /dev/ttyS4 as the device and 9600 8N1.
I have also edited /etc/inittab.conf to respawn agetty as seen in another post here. None of this seems to work. I still get 'offline' in minicom.
Any ideas, has anyone got this working before?
If I cannot get this working does anyone know of another app I can use in linux to do this? it would save me rebooting into windows and using secureCRT or puTTY.
