Console on Sup III

Unanswered Question

We have a Cat 5505 with a Sup III module, but are unable to access it through the console port. We have the correct cable as we can see it booting on the output dumped to the terminal client, but it will not take any input, not even a break code. It's currently sat here showing the 'Username:' prompt, but obviously we can't do much with it!

Any ideas?

I have this problem too.

Do u already test that console cable in other equipment or other cable in that equipment ?

Hi Simon,

As you can see the console output so I believe cable is correct but just for the confirmation I believe you must be using straight cable and not the regular console cable?

Try changing the cable and the work station that you are using to get to work with. Try using some other terminal emulation program.
