Connect from USB to serial port of switch

Operating Systems Linux Connect from USB to serial port of switch
# 8  
So how about using an ethernet to serial adapter to gain access to the switch serial management port remotely? See attached.

Obviously I would recommend that you fully test the solution locally on an identical switch if you have one, before shipping to the remote site for somebody to simply plug in.

I've successfully used such devices to access serial ports of remote RAID controllers using nothing more than an IP address from PuTTy.

Just an idea. There are, of course, a variety of ethernet to serial adapters out there. Just search for them.
