What terminal can I use to console into my Cisco Catalyst 2960 switch? I would prefer Putty. New to using RPI but I have some labs I want to use them for. I'm a CCNA student.
For serial access to routers and switches I tend to use screen although mincom might be a bit easier for a beginner.
If your using the on-board uart on the pi to connect to a Cisco (or other device) you probably want a suitable level converter in the middle (the pi uart will only tolerate 3v3 and not the higher voltages usually seen in rs232). I tend to use usb-serial devices for accessing routers like that which should be tolerant of the voltages normally used for rs232.
