IGS Router Password Recovery

Have a IGS Router that hasn't been used in a few years. Can login but nobody knows the enable password. Have linked to router with V220 terminal and a PC with Hyperterminal on a rollover cable linking the com ports. In both cases cannot get the router to respond to break key as per password recovery instructions from Cisco. Have tried alternate procedures of changing the emulation setting and using the space bar as a break key. Dead in the water. Anybody have a workable suggestion.


Re: IGS Router Password Recovery

Often times complex troubleshooting issues are best addressed in an interactive session with one of our trained technical assistance engineers. While other forum users may be able to help, it’s often difficult to do so for this type of issue.

To utilize the resources at our Technical Assistance Center, please visit and to open a case with one of our TAC engineers, visit

If anyone else in the forum has some advice, please reply to this thread.

Thank you for posting.
