How to connect to a Cisco device on COM1: ?


Hi,

Does anybody know how I can connect to a cisco device connected to COM1?

I always need to go back to windows to do this... I'm sure I should be able to open a shell connection, but I don't know how...

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

well there is no com1 under linux, it'd be /dev/ttyS0, and i'd suggest looking at the extremely bog standard minicom program to do this.
