I believe the newer Cisco equipment comes preconfigured from factory with a local username/password combination of cisco/cisco. I don't know that's the case here. If it isn't then password recovery is the only option.

there is no default username and password on a 2950 it would have been specifically configured on the 2950 by someone . Some devices like the 2800 series do come with a username and paswword on it , haven't figured out the point of that right out of the box and its cisco/cisco . You will probably have to do a password recovery if you can't figure it out.
