Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong forum.
I have acquired a 2950 switch upon which to practice. I also have a cisco router that I can access and configure just fine, but am having problems accessing the switch via the console.
It appears to boot fine and the output prior to being asked if i would like to enter initial configuration dialog is fine, but when prompted for this I cannot type "yes" as I would like (or anything), and the following is always output aftetr this:
--- System Configuration Dialog ---
Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:
00:00:14: %SPANTREE-5-EXTENDED_SYSID: Extended SysId enabled for type vlan
00:00:17: %SYS-5-RESTART: System restarted --

At this point I can do nothing but turn the switch off...
Can anybody point me in the right direction? Getting a little frustrated :(
