Cisco makes a lot of routers. If you know which one you have the manufactures webpage or manual might be helpful.

What make and model do you have?
http://homestore.cisco.com/en-us/pro...6VVviewcat.htm

I'm not good with servers I don't have one. But if you can provide the make and model one of our members should be able to help. This tutorial might help.

Cisco Router Configuration Tutorial:
http://pages.swcp.com/~jgentry/topo/cisco.htm
This configuration is just an example but it can at least give you an idea of what to do.
http://pages.swcp.com/~jgentry/topo/cisco.htm#sect3.6
This is for configuring the interfaces-
http://pages.swcp.com/~jgentry/topo/cisco.htm#sect3.2

When you make a thread try to include a better description in your circumstances and what you have already tried. Also;try to give specifications of devices; ie) make & model #'s-

You run minicom (if you've not already installed putty), which is another serial terminal emulator. Connect the cable, and do what you need.

Well, the first thing to do is check whether or not you have any OTHER serial devices plugged in. /dev/ttyS0 is the first serial port (COM1 equivalent in Windows). So if you've got one serial device plugged in/working (modem? Fax?), then you need to use a different port...same as with Windows.

Try /dev/ttyS1. And if your office has another person that's doing this already, you should ask them to take a look....

Spell out your words. And the last time you posted here was back in mid-October, and we had asked you some questions, but never heard back. Again, if you have someone in your office that is already doing this, you should ask them to take a look at things. However, I don't think that's necessary in this case, as you seem to have answered your own question.

If you can talk to a Cisco 7200 router with this same configuration/setup, but not to a 3800, then the problem is very obviously with the 3800 router. You're using the same cable, same laptop, same software...but it's not working with the device on the OTHER END. That's where your problem is. So, either you've got a bad serial port on that router, or the transmit/receive pins are different on it. Try a null-modem adapter and/or read the manual on the 3800 and the 7200, which should tell you if there are any differences.

Please change your title to something relevant other than 'help'. Using informative titles is pretty much netiquette on every single forum that is in existence.

Again, you need to SPELL OUT YOUR WORDS. It's "please", not "pls".

Also, this makes no sense, based on what you posted before. You said that you already HAD minicom working, and were able to use it to connect to another router. Now you're asking how you run it? No, you don't need internet or network connectivity to run minicom...it's a serial terminal program only. The man pages and their website can tell you everthing you need to know about it.

Another piece of advice -- make sure that the baud rate, stop bits, parity, and other connection parameters are the same for the 3800 router as they are for the 7200 router. If they're not, you might need to change the minicom configuration appropriately to establish a connection. The minicom man page and documentation will tell you exactly how to do this.

Don't type in all caps, please...it's fairly rude.

Yes, that's the command, but more importantly, you could have just RUN IT and found out the results, faster than you posted here. And AGAIN, if there's someone in your office that's done this before, why aren't you asking/talking to your co-workers?. Installing a new package on Ubuntu is well documented, and easily found with a brief Google search. If you type "how to install minicom on ubuntu" into Google, this is the VERY FIRST HIT
