I recently purchased a 2950 Cisco switch on eBay to use in my Cisco lab. When I try to connect to the switch using the console port I don’t get anything, no matter what I do I can’t connect using the console port (changed the port speed on the terminal emulator etc) . I tried a password recovery but no luck ……I’m very sure the console port is disabled.
I know the switch works because I can see it using CDP, I can see the new switch IP address and enough information to assume the switch is functional.
Are there any jumpers or anything that I can try to enable the console port? Any ideas Im willing to try anything.
Thanks and I do apologize for posting this topic on security when I could have posted on Routing and switching. But in my opinion the issue could be a switch issue or a security issue.
