What I have:
- MacBook Pro with OSX Lion
- Very old Cisco Router and Switch
- Two Crossover Cables (1 Cisco Console to Serial and 1 Cisco Console to Cisco Console)
- One Serial to USB Cable
I am very new to Cisco stuff and not sure how I can use my MacBook to connect to the router/switch in order I can configure them.
Can I use crossover cable (Ethernet to Ethernet) and then use Terminal app from OSX? Or I should use crossover cable (Ethernet to Serial), connect it to Serial to USB cable and then connect it to my laptop?
How can I use Terminal app to connect? What commands should I use?
