Greetings, I'm trying to connect to a Cisco 2900 Series Switch from a Windows 7 Pro box via serial to rj-45, using Putty and not able to connect.
I found this video via youtube and did everything he did and I'm not able to connect.
YouTube - Using Putty for Connecting to Cisco Devices
I noticed that Windows defaults to com1 and I changed that to com3 like the example and it still isn't working.
When using Google noticed a few threads saying that legacy hardware, like the serial port is going the way of the dinosaur...so with that being said was wondering if anyone has an issue like this and if they were able to work thru it or should I just get usb to rj-45 cable?
