Config snippets : Cisco : Redirect console output to telnet session


This is one of those things I always forget when is needed. How to redirect console output to telnet session when debugging something on Cisco device.

So, not to forget it I record it for future reference (I guess from now on I will remember that, but well.. what you do… just Murphy’s law)

From telnet session just issue command shown below, and all debug logs will be redirected to telnet session.

How-to : Access BlackBerry PlayBook via SSH


So, I was wondering how to access my PlayBook using SSH. It would be really convinient to access it from laptop, browse files, etc. I did poke around on Internet and finally identified solution how to SSH to PlayBook 🙂 For now only as a normal user and working towards getting root access (I guess Dingleberry will be helpful at some stage) 🙂

For now let’s have a look into details of accessing PlayBook via SSH. for that I will use:

  • BlackBerry Tablet SDK 2.0.0 – available for free on BlackBerry web page here. There might be newer version available by now.
  • PuTTY – I guess most popular free terminal emulator for SSH, Telnet and Serial connections, available here. From that package PuTTY.exe and PuTTYgen.exe will be required.
