I've been looking into a c1000 as a replacement for my 860. I used my 860 to configure my cisco equipment via the console until my 860 decided to shed the TXD pin from the connector.

Anyway, I have seen a little speculation that the "hidden" port on the back of the c1000 is acutally a serial port similar to the serial/usb port on the cxx0 series, but other reports say that it is just a diag port. Does any one know if this has been confirmed as a serial port?

My next question is this: if using a serial cable with the c1000, like I did with the 860, is out of the question, would a standard usb to serial adapter work as expected for minicom or kermit purposes?

I've seen a couple of reports on this forums (in regards to the C3000), that the diag port does function as a TTL (0-3.3v) serial port. (I've seen someone mention in passing that this is the same as the ports on the older Z's, but I haven't confirmed that) How well that works with your equipment will vary. One report specifically mentioned that the C3000 puts out info on the serial port while booting.

You can also use a USB->Serial convertor on the USB port.
