Console connection to RSP440

Tom Marcoen

Hey all

I'm working from the console on a RSP440 in a new ASR9010 chassis using PuTTY (v0.64). I'm experiencing the following issues:

  • Cursor (arrow) keys don't work. Luckily I know about Ctrl+P and Ctrl+N.
  • Pasting in text using the right mouse button does not work.

It might be an important detail that I'm using an USB-to-serial converter on my laptop and a standard serial-to-RJ45 light blue Cisco console cable. Important because I read the following on a different forum:

According to the docs, I should be using a straight through cable and 
a configuration of 8N2 with no flow control at 9600.

However I do not really understand what he means with a straight through cable. I know other vendors do use a straight through ethernet cable combined with a RJ45-to-serial converter.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

PS: I don't remember this being an issue on the older RSP-4G.

yeah the nasty thing is that the default stopbits setting of the rsp440 is 2.

so first thing you need to configure (by typing slowly, otherwise you hit the same overrun issues :) is:

conf t

line console stopbits 1

commit

and you're set ready to go typging faster and using the arrow keys and copy pasting.
