Unable to user Serial Port in Windows 7
Hi,

I have a PC and laptop now with Windows 7 Professional both have serial ports, I use this port to connect to un-configured Cisco routers, and I have had no problems when using this port under Windows XP or Windows Vista.

I am using putty to connect and I have ensured that all the settings are correct.

Is this a problem with Windows 7?

Thanks for any help...
