mini USB cable to Cisco C3750X switch console port
Posted on 2012-03-16
I noticed there's a mini USB port on our C3750X switch labelled
I used my Samsung (& Nokia's as well) phone's mini USB cable to
plug into this port on the switch with the other end of the USB
cable plugged into my Win XP SP3 laptop
Windows reported Cisco USB/serial cable detected & prompted
to install the driver. My laptop is connected to the internet but
after searching for a while, it could not find/install any driver.
Without any driver installed, I got a blank screen when I used a
terminal emulation software (putty) to connect to Com3:
Typing "at" or "atdt" returns OK but I don't get the usual Cisco
IOS or CatOS response.
Where can I get this driver or what do I need to do to be able
to console into the switch using the mini USB console port?
