Logging In to the CLI Using PuTTY over a Serial Port

Logging In to the CLI Using PuTTY over a Serial Port


Use PuTTY to log in to a server over a serial port when:

  • You want to perform initial configuration of the server.
  • The server is inaccessible over a network port.
  • You can obtain the PuTTY software from the chiark home page.
  • You are advised to use PuTTY of the latest version. PuTTY of an earlier version may cause login failures.


  1. On the PC, double-click PuTTY.exe.

    The PuTTY Configuration window is displayed.

  2. In the navigation tree, choose Connection > Serial.
  3. Set the login parameters.

    The parameters are described as follows:

    • Serial Line to connect to: COMn
    • Speed (baud): 115200
    • Data bits: 8
    • Stop bits: 1
    • Parity: None
    • Flow control: None

    n in COMn indicates a serial port number, and its value is an integer.

  4. In the navigation tree, choose Session.
  5. Select Serial under Connection type.

  6. Set Close window on exit to Only on clean exit.

    Set Saved Sessions and click Save. You can double-click the saved record in Saved Sessions to log in to the server next time.

  7. Click Open.

    The PuTTY screen is displayed. Then the message "login as:" is displayed, prompting you to enter a user name.

    If this is your first login to the server, the PuTTY Security Alert dialog box is displayed. Click Yes to proceed.

  8. Enter the user name and password.

    If the login is successful, the server host name is displayed on the left of the prompt.
