To install, configure and make operational a USB serial interface to Cisco console port. This example is accomplished with Ubuntu built on debian.

user:~$ sudo -i

root:/# lsusb

Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0a5c:5801 Broadcom Corp. BCM5880 Secure Applications Processor with fingerprint swipe sensor

Bus 002 Device 005: ID 05a6:0009 Cisco Systems, Inc.

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1bcf:2b83 Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc. Laptop Integrated Webcam FHD

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 413c:8187 Dell Computer Corp. DW375 Bluetooth Module

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

root:/# modprobe usbserial vendor=0x05a6 product=0x0009

root:/#dmesg | grep 05a6

remember the product code from earlier

usb 2-1.4: New USB device found, idVendor=05a6, idProduct=0009

usb 2-1.4: New USB device found, idVendor=05a6, idProduct=0009

root:/#dmesg | grep tty

console [tty0] enabled

cdc_acm 2-1.4:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device

cdc_acm 2-1.4:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device

note the usb 2-1.4 from dmesg vendor code and dmesg tty these match so the info to take away from here is ttyACM0 note linux is case sensitive. Use ttyACM0 in minicom

Install minicom

root:/# apt-get install minicom

configure minicom serial
