Console connect to Cisco routers via minicom
Authored by: reese on Jul 01, '04 09:04:35PM

I have been using zterm for years, starting on OS9,8,7? to console SGI and SUN servers as well as Cisco gear. Yes, it works great and there is basically no setup.
But... you have to be in front of the Mac to use it. For remote service you need to use a remote desktop app (ARD, Timbuktu, VNC) just to get a shell.
I just set up minicom and after cleaning up a few messes in Fink it works and I can access it via ssh.
