Switch: HP ProCurve 2910AL-48G - J9147A
This switch is brand new straight from HP.
Anyone familiar with ser2net for creating a terminal server to connect from usb>serial>console port on a HP procurve switch? I've done this 4 times in the past couple months and had 0 issues. This exact same new one isn't working.
Guides I used as a reference:

Connected to localhost. Escape character is '^]'. ser2net port 3002 device /dev/ttyUSB0 [9600 N81] (Debian GNU/Linux)
Then it just hangs there, doesn't take me to a prompt as it did in the past with other brand new switches. If you type anything you get:
Connection closed by foreign host.
Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this? Also if there is a better way of doing this, feel free to inform me, I have 3 new switches that ideally need to be deployed by end of day tomorrow.
