Connecting console port using tab


This time my question was unanswered by Google. May be the thing I am looking for does not exist (till date).

Since the world of computing is changing so fast, PCs being replaced by laptops, and now laptops being replaced by tabs, etc. I wanted to know if I can connect a tab(ipad/Galaxy tab or any other android tab ) to console port of a switch/router.

Although there are apps like PuTTy in App Store and Android Market, and I know there are USB ports on tabs and there are Serial-to-USB converters available in market. But are there any drivers available for those converters designed for any tabs? In short, can I connect to switch/router's console port using tabs?


  1. You can get the necessary cable from places like for the iPad
