I just walked into a position where the previous guy had quit. One of the hand-me-down projects taht I have inherited was trying to get our old ACS operational again.
H/W - Cisco 1112 Secure Access Control System
O/S - Windows 2000 Server
Server - Cisco Secure Access Control Server for Windows 2000/NT Servers Version 3.0
Currently the system boots up and eventually gets to a Lock Notice that states: "Applicance is functioning normally. To administer this applicance, please connect via serial port or through a web browser"
I am not able to break the boot sequence at any point.
I am not able to connect via HTTP (port 80 or 2002)
I am not able to ping it on the documented IP. (Even wrote a quick Pingsweep batch file in DOS and was not able to discover it on the /24 network, just in case the previous tech had changed the IP)
The 1112 does not have a console port, so my console serial cables are worthless
My straight-through serial cable does not work.
The documentation said there was a cable that came with the hardware to connect to it. That was almost 10 years ago, so who knows where THAT cable is.
I think that covers everything.
Is there someone out there that can offer some assistance on this?
MANY Thanks in Advance
