Trouble attempting to configure 2921 router

Hi all,

Not very experienced at this. Recently purchased a refurbished 2921 router from a cisco reseller.

I am currently trying to ssh into the router through the console port using a crossover cable, however, I am unable to find the host name.

Hope this helps, please let me know if you need more support
