the " password recovery functionality is disabled " service is running on the system .
im trying to access rommon in a Cisco 851, with not much success, i am sending a break after the image is loaded ( in the time frame that is allowed for that) .
am missing on something here ?
thank you for the help

Please let me know if this was helpful.
leolaohoo is right.. that service prevent me from getting the rommon running. I have tries sending a break in a few methods and in different stages of the boot process, at this point it seems to be unstoppable..
You might want to try looking at this document and see if it works:
Hope this helps,
Hyperterminal (version 595160)
DOS or Windows
Ctrl-], then type send brk
Telnet to Cisco
Ctrl-], then Break or Ctrl-c
VT 100 Emulation
Shift-6 Shift-4 Shift-b (^$B)
Connect pin 2 (X-mit) to +V for half a second
Cisco to aux port
Control-Shft-6, then b
Problems that you encounter during password recovery often occur because you are not sure about what the break key sequence is for the (non-Cisco) software you use. For software not listed in the table, and for additional information, refer to the documentation of the individual software packages.
The auxiliary (AUX) port is not active during the boot sequence of a router. Therefore, it is no use if you send a break through the AUX port. You need to have connection to the console port, and have these settings:
9600 baud rate
8 data bits
1 stop bit
No flow control
Some versions of Windows NT have hyperterminal software that cannot send the correct break key signal. Refer to http://www.hilgraeve.com/hyperterminal.html for more information and for an upgrade of the hyperterminal software.
In some cases, the break sequence might not get transmitted properly when using a USB/Serial converter cable. In such cases, use a keyboard with a different connector port (for example, a PS/2).
Break key sequence simulation is useful if your terminal emulator does not support the break key, or if a bug does not allow your terminal emulator to send the correct signal.
Note: The hyperterminal under Windows NT had this behavior in the past.
Complete these steps to simulate a break key sequence:
Connect to the router with these terminal settings:
1200 baud rate
8 data bits
1 stop bit
No flow control
You no longer see any output on your screen, and this is normal.
Power cycle (switch off and then on) the router and press the SPACEBAR for 10-15 seconds in order to generate a signal similar to the break sequence.
Disconnect your terminal, and reconnect with a 9600 baud rate. You enter the ROM Monitor mode.
If all these methods fail to properly send a break, retry the procedures from a different terminal or PC platform.
Try to do the following, it may help....
1. console to router
2. power cycle the router
3. while rebooting press ctrl+shift+Paus Break key
It should work as I did recently to one of my 881G.
if not working try ctrl+Paus Break
I am starting to think that maybe there is IOS loaded to the system,
Because i am prity sure that the break sequence is being transmited by the terminal program.
I thin that in that case the system is a really bas problem,
I have similar systems; is there anything that can be done with the other systems to help out this busted one ?
The only time I see in this forum of individuals having difficult with Ctrl+Break is when they are using a USB-to-Serial adaptor/interface. You don't happen to use this, by chance, would you?
I got into the same situation and luckily found that the RESET button on the device is the solution.
Good luck !!
Q. How do you set the router back to its factory default settings?
