Terminal for Raspbian such as Putty

Sun Jul 22, 2018 4:15 pm

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.

Is it a serial console on the switch or network console telnet/ssh ?

For serial: screen , minicom , GtkTerm.
For telnet or ssh, just open a terminal window and connect with command "telnet ip-address" or "ssh ip-address".

Or you could just use PuTTY.

apt install putty

Note: Current versions of PuTTY on Windows do serial (as well as telnet/ssh). I am not certain if the Linux port does. It should, but, well, you never know...

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.
