How to connect with Cisco devices in windows

How to connect with Cisco devices in windowsIn this lab scenario I will demonstrate that how can you connect with a Cisco router. To connect physical Cisco device you need a console cable. Attach cable to com port on computer and other end to console port of Cisco devices.

Console Port

When you first obtain a new Cisco device, it won't be configured. That is to say, it will not do any of the customized functions you might need; it does not have any IP addresses, and it is generally not going to do what you paid for. Routers need basic configuration to function on a network. The console port is used for local management connections. This means that you must be able to physically reach the console port with a cable that is typically about six feet long. The console port looks exactly like an Ethernet port.
Once you have proper console cable follow this path
Now on computer click on stat button ==> program = = > accessories == > communications == > hyper terminal == > location information == > cancel == > Confirm cancel == > yes == > hyper terminal == > OK Connection Descriptions == > Vinita == > OK == > location information == > confirm cancel == > yes == > hyper terminal == > connect to == > OK == > Port Settings == > Do setting as Given Below and press OK.

If you still have problem in configuring hyper terminal or you do not have hyper terminal options in accessories you can use this tiny software. With this software you connect with any devices that support Telnet, SSH, Rlogin, console connections. This is ready to use software. Download it and execute it. Select Serial sub key from Session main key and rest it will do automatically.

How to connect with router in Boson Simulator

If you use Boson simulator for CCNA practical then select erouter from tools menu and select router from available list. ( Device only be available when any topology will be loaded in simulator. Use Boson Network designer to create topology.)

How to connect with router in packet tracer

First create a desire topology by dragging devices to workspace. Once you have created topology configurations in packet tracer is straight forward. To Configure any device double click on it and select CLI.
