  • Baud rate: 9600 bps,
  • Data bits: 8,
  • Parity: None,
  • Stop bits: 1,
  • Flow control: None.

To change the console speed, you simply use the speed command in line-configuration mode for console 0. The syntax for the speed command is speed . Options may vary on different platforms.

   line console 0 
   speed 115200
