I am trying to connect to my Cisco Catalyst 2900XL switch via the console port. I have the an authentic console cable, which works as i have been configuring the switch on a windows box up until now.
I installed minicom and set it up as described here but no luck. Minicom starts up but it wont connect.
If i press CTRL A at the bottom it says i am online, but i dont see a login prompt or anything.
I installed Putty as well, and i get the same result, a blank screen. I wanted to make sure it wasnt the cable or the switch, so i plugged it into a windows machine running putty and it works perfectly.
