Re: Serial port

Firstly, Connect a serial cable from the cisco to your PC. If your pc have no serial ports, just only USBs, you need to attach a usb2serial connector.

Secondly, Open Xshell, and make a session file. Then select the connection method to 'Serial'.
Mostly just selecting the serial port number which you connect in the first step may be all thing you have to do.

Re: Serial port

I have done this procedure , but does not working

To see the message below:

Connecting to COM5...

Connection closed by foreign host.

I can access the same router using the Tera Term software.

Re: Serial port

Please look under Properties > Serial and try changing the SERIAL options to match the options in the TARA TERM session.
