If memory serves me right you have quite old switches here and their main configuration tool is via this menu system. You might try the option for the console password and see if that takes you closer to where you want to be.

Gee whiz!

1900C!!!!

These switches are MENU DRIVEN.  There is no CLI.  No CLI means no "priviledged" mode.

There were two versions of software for the 1900 series switches, one that purely menu based configuration and management and the Enterprise version, which had an option to exit the menu and get access to a CLI. Note though that this is not Cisco IOS.

There's a post, Catalyst 1900 Enterprise software, on the forum from 2002 that will give you some more details. As indicated in that post there's an option to upgrade to the Enterprise edition, but you obviously need to acquire the software.

As per the reponses from Richard and Leo, these are very old switches and depending upon what you're trying to do with them, may not serve your purpose.

  There is no specific command line, as you have posted it's menu system driven , just select one of the letters to configure what you need .  These were one of the first series of switches that cisco made back in the middle 1990's which I believe they bought from some other company.  Just select the letters to configure what you need , they are really quite different from IOS switches.
