Router does not respond to the break sequence from Windows NT HyperTerminal


If you are using the Microsoft Windows NT operating system with the original HyperTerminal version, and you need to issue a break sequence to get to the ROM monitor (ROMmon) mode on a Cisco router, perform one of the following options:

  • Upgrade to the latest HyperTerminal version for Windows NT.
  • Utilize another terminal emulator program.
