    Aloha everyone,

    I have a 15" MacBook Pro, console cable, and USB to Serial adapter. I would like to be able to console into a Cisco router, but I'm not entirely sure how to do so on a Mac. When I was on a PC, I used either Hyperterminal or Teraterm Pro. While there is a Console app on the Mac, it is a log viewer.

    What application would I use to console into a router? I can use Terminal to telnet into a router, but to set up access and provide for basic router configuration, I would need to console in first. Any assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated.

    Mahalo in advance for your responses,

    Try ZTerm, or if you don't like the thought of registration fees and are familiar with Terminal.app, try this hint. screen is a great built-in binary.

    Aloha Lixivial,

    Thanks for your quick reply. I'll check out both apps. I knew there was a way, but wan't sure which app would do the trick. :D
