I have a Cisco Switch that is connected to my computer via serial. I simply want to configure the switch via the serial connection from within a terminal.
I edited the /etc/inittab to include agetty for ttyS2 and ttyS3. The switch is hooked up to one of the two.
to re-read the inittab
and I can see the two agettys
I also have run a dmesg to confirm that my computer has detected ttyS terminals.
The requirements for the cisco switch connection are the following:
8 data bits
1 stop bit
no flow control
115200 bits per sec baud rate
How do I connect to /dev/ttyS2 or /dev/ttyS3?
agetty -8 115200 ttyS2 vt100
but it just hangs.
Tried that with ttyS3 as well.
