I finally got my hands on a console cable and to no surprise there is a password on it. I was givin some equip to practice for my CCNA exam and they had passwords on them. I tried running the confreg 0x2142 command at the rommon 1> prompt and then typed reset at the rommon 2> and this is the message I get. Does anyone know a way around this?
