I just purchased a used catalyst 2950T-24 off ebay, and attempted to enter privileged exec mode. the previous owner had a secret password, that i did not guess in three tries. I attempted to preform the password recovery, but as soon as i issued the break command the switch stopped echoing my text to hyperterminal. so now it does not respond at all to my commands. any thoughts. I restarted the switch a few times, with and with out breaks, and my pc. Also i checked the port settings for com1 (9600, 8, none, 1, none)no dice. thanks in advance.

Random aside: PuTTY 0.60 now has a "Serial" option in addition to SSH/Raw/telnet... (I figure this may be a pleasant change for PuTTY fans)

The procedure states:
Use the following terminal settings:
Bits per second (baud): 9600
Data bits: 8
Parity: None
Stop bits: 1
Flow Control: Xon/Xoff


Note the difference in flow control settings...

i tried using a different terminal program (secureCRT) and it works now. however I can't reset the password as the Flash directory is unavailable.

unable to stat flash/: permission denied

any thoughts?

Did you sucessfully get it reset?

If you are still having issues getting in the flash, remember you have to initialize it before you can use/access it.
