    Anyone here find an easy way to configure a Cisco device, via a USB -> Serial converter? (ie Terminal Emulation)

    I have found several sites talking about the old and outdated (and costly) ZTerm, and one or two other apps. Nothing like good old HyperTerminal that comes installed by default on Windows.

    I've already seen this. ZTerm and minicom are the only two software results I found in all of the "5 minutes" that I searched. Also, when I followed the method for installing minicom, my Mac could no longer mount disks, and I lost connection to my external HDD, CD/DVD, and .dmg's...
    I've also seen this already too, my problem here is that under /dev/tty* there's nothing that resembles a serial port. And yes, I installed the PL-2303 driver and rebooted. (Even though, everyone loves to claim the Mac doesn't need to be rebooted)
    All I'm saying is that this is so simple Windows has offered a solution for it since '95. And I'm having to spend time researching a "hack" to make it work on my Mac.

    Right, because windows based PC's do everything perfectly...:rolleyes:


    People around here and in general don't brag up mac's because they're flawless, because no product is. They brag them up because the vast majority of the time they're superior to their windows counterparts.

    Wow, I don't own a Mac because it's cool. I have had Macs in my house for over 5 years now. I know they are better than PCs. I was making a frustrated joke because I couldn't do something SO SIMPLE!!

    RS232 needs to die. Windows is not helping.

    first smart post. I agree. However, Cisco is more of a player than MS.
