    Default Connecting to cisco switch

    I want to connect my pc back to console port. I don't have old serial connection on the back of my pc, just usb.
    Can this connection be made possible with some kind of RJ-45-USB cable (rj45 to switch console port, usb back to my pc) ?

    No, Not directly

    You will need one of these .. to connect the console cable to your laptop.
    Get a high quality one, because cheaper models sometimes just fail.

    But, if i don't have serial port at the back of my PC, what is the other solution? Is there some kind of serial-to-USB adapter so i can connect it to my usb port?

    many thanks
