using a linux box and USB-RJ45 to connect to console port
I'm studying for the ICDN1 exam and I bought an old catalyst 2900 Series XL to have something to play with for studying.
I'm in a Linux only environment and my laptop doesn't have a serial connection, but I did find a USB to RJ45 cable that looks like a rollover cable. Has anyone tried this setup and had success? How did you configure things to work in Linux? I downloaded minicom but I can't seem to find the device to connect it to.

Find the name of your usb port with the following command
dmesg | grep tty
[ 0.000000] console [tty0] enabled [4369985.708013] usb 3-1: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0 [4370808.468473] ftdi_sio ttyUSB0: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0 [4370998.270624] usb 3-1: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0 [4372325.714145] ftdi_sio ttyUSB0: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0 [4372359.720319] usb 3-1: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0
sudo minicom -s
Hardware flow NO
Change the device /dev/ttyUSB0 (Your output from the dmesg command)
"Escape" to go back to the main menu.
Next, you need to select "Save setup as dfl" and hit "Enter" to save these settings to the default profile. Then select "Exit Minicom" to exit Minicom.
