hyperterminal problems

I inherited a 2950t-24 switch. I attempted enter privileged exec mode, but was unable to guess the secret password. I initiated the password recovery but after i broke the restart the switch stopped echoing my responses to hyperterminal. I enabled echo so that i can see what i am typing, but i still can not execute commands. I restarted the switch a few times, as well as my pc; no change. I checked the com1 settings (9600 , 8, none, 1, none) no change. any help would be great.

Re: hyperterminal problems

i tried using secureCRT and it works now. however I can't reset the password as the Flash directory is unavailable.

unable to stat flash/: permission denied

any thoughts?

Re: hyperterminal problems

Hyperterminal will occasionally flake out and not recognize keyboard input to serial devices.
