    Default serial to usb driver

    Anyone heard of this make zaapa?

    i got my hands on some switches but the serial to usb adaptor needs a driver. i have spent last 1.5 hrs looking and trying a couple generic ones but none work. (driver installs has exclamation mark next to it )

    any help or anyone have similar driver? or will i just buy a new adaptor

    This has always worked for the standard console cables, had someone in a remote state by a standard light blue console cable and install this driver (I believe its the same driver) and was able to Putty into a firewall.

    Got to talk him through the phone on configuring an interface, it was a fun start to my day

    I have a $40+ converter, as Windows 10 upgrade began to cause my lab laptop to reboot if too much CLI output flooded out at once, so if this is happening you'll need a fancy pants one like mine which they'll send you a special driver for I'm sure.
