 +====== Connect to OS6860/E USB-Console with your Apple Macbook (MacOS X) ======
  
 +The Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 6860/E (both models E/non-E) support the configuration/connection through USB console. This allows to just use an USB-to-Micro-USB cable and no longer requires specialised USB-to-serial adapters.
 +
 +If you want to leverage that interface from your Apple Macbook (Pro) running MacOS X (in my case v10.9.2), you'll need to install a UART-driver (Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter). This driver will create a new virtual COM-port / interface that you can use in Minicom/Screen as you used to with your serial-connection, the exact description is: **CP210x USB to UART Bridge Virtual COM Port (VCP) driver**
 +
 +You can download the necessary driver, for various operating systems including Apple MacOS X, from the following website:
 +  * [[http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/pages/usbtouartbridgevcpdrivers.aspx|Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge VCP Drivers (External Link, we're not responsible for the contents!)]]
 +
 +**Example of a connection to the OS6860/E:**\\ 
 +{{::os6860e-usb-console.jpg?nolink|}}
 +
 +During installation the driver will create a new interface:<code>
 +MacBook:~ Benny$ ls /dev/tty.*
 +/dev/tty.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port /dev/tty.Bluetooth-Modem /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART
 +
 +MacBook:~ Benny$ screen /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART 9600
 +
 +Welcome to the Alcatel-Lucent OS6860E-P24 8.1.1.267.R01 Development, February 25, 2014.

 +
 +->
 +</code>
 +
 +There is still a "traditional" RS232 console connection available, that will need an adapter MicroUSB-to-RJ45 + the USB-to-serial adapter on Macbook/Laptop side.
 +
 +The connection speed is factory default of 9600 BAUD.
