Console Port Connection in Cisco Routers

The router has an EIA/TIA-232 asynchronous serial console port (RJ-45). Depending on the cable and the adapter used, this port appears as a DTE or DCE device at the end of the cable.

For connection to a PC running terminal emulation software e.g HyperTerminal in Windows machine, router is provided with an RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter cable (blue cable).

The default parameters for the console port are 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity. The console port does not support hardware flow control.
