problem using as console (more info) 17 Years, 7 Months ago  
I forgot to say: I don't have these 2 problems when telnetting to a remote switch via IP. The problem only exists in consoling Direct to Com.

For the double-line enter, check the value of Options->Properties->VTOptions->"Enter Sends"

It's probably set to CR/LF. Switch it.

For the other issue, it sounds like a flow control problem. Your host is sending data faster than the serial port can receive it and some data is lost. TCP/IP connections such as telnet and SSH will not have this problem as the TCP/IP protocol guarantees that any data lost in transit will be re-sent and received in the proper order on the receiver side.

Go to Options->Properties->Connection->Direct to Com and hit the 'configure port' button. What is the value of the 'Flow Control' parameter?

works now. I set the Enter send to CR; and I set flow control to Hardware default.

thanks!

Glad to hear it!

For others who may read this, using hardware flow control depends largely on the hardware in use and the cable used to connect. A cable that supports hardware flow control will have a few extra wires to carry a signal that notifies the other side when it is ok to send data. Without flow control, serial buffers can get overrun and data will be lost. If you're not sure about the capabilities of your hardware or proper cabling, be sure to consult your hardware documentation.
