Unable to connect via Serial (Windows 7)


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Just got my Bash Bunny today and I'm having trouble connecting via serial. I believe all my settings are correct and drivers are installed. Can anyone help? I'm using PUTTY with all the proper settings, and trying on both COM1 and COM3. Either way, I'm getting a blank window when I try to open the connection

Here in my system info/settings:

-Windows 7 64bit
-CDC Driver is installed
-Ports (COM & LPT) shows Communications Port (COM1) and Gadget Serial (COM3)
-BashBunny is in Arming Mode, blinking blue
-Bash Bunny is fresh out of the package, no modifications

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

For me the BB shows as "USB Serial Device", in Win10. If you remove the BB do those COM ports disappear? 

Thank you... Actually, the COM ports do not disappear when the BB is removed. I updated my USB driver and it works now!

I should have included this post in my previous as it sounds like you might be having the same issue...

  1. Open Device Manager
  2. Right click on CDC Serial under 'Other devices'
  3. Left click 'Update Driver Software...'
  4. Left click 'Browse my computer for driver software'
  5. Left click 'Browse...' and select the drive letter of your BashBunny
  6. Left click 'Next'.
  7. Left click 'Install this driver software anyway' (If you get a Windows Security popup).
  8. Click 'Close'
  9. Profit

At this point you should see 'Gadget Serial (COM#)' under 'Ports (COM & LPT). Let me know if that helps. Cheers.
