    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...
    Karl
