I just purchased a USB to Mini-USB console cable to use with the 2960s switches we just bought.  I download the current(?) driver Ver. 3.1 loaded it on my Win 7 64-bit laptop.  It installs ok but when I try to use it with Putty, Putty comes back saying it can't access the port.  I noticed the driver says it's for Win XP and Win Vista.  Is there a newer driver for Win 7?  Any other ideas?

For some reason the USB driver is about impossible to find. Search: Catalyst 3850-48P-L Switch The driver is called Cisco_usbconsole_driver_3_1.zip Or the below URL if it is not stripped. https://software.cisco.com/download/home/284455380/type/282855122/release/3.1

To download the driver you will need a CISCO account login... update your account with your address... accept user agreement... apologies to coworkers for numerous expletives lodged during ridicules endeavor.

Good luck out there.
