Setting up putty for cisco gear

By fishingforbasses ·
I've been using hyperterm private, my key is about to expire, and i cannot get putty to work.

What settings need to be changed to make it work with cisco gear.

I thought it would work without any configuration?

I set Stop Bits, parity etc correctly, but I am defidently missing something.........

Are you trying to use putty for console access or telnet/SSH?

Telnet or SSH should just work out of the box so to speak. For console access I have never tried to make it work like that, however I will attempt it and see if I come up with a workable solution. It should just be standard Com Port, 9600 N81 no flow.

Are you changing it to Serial instead of the default Telnet?

by SKDTech In reply to Setting up putty for cisc ...

Here is a page that shows you how to set it up. If you are using a USB-to-Serial adapter you will need to change the port from COM1 to the highest COM(4 in my case). Worked perfectly fine for me.
