    It uses a special cable. DB-9 female to RJ-45 to the CLI port. You have to build it.

    DB-9 --> RJ-45

    1 no connection

    2 4

    3 6

    4 3&8

    5 5

    6 2

    7 7

    8 1

    9 no connection

    using this at 38400,n,8,1 works to get a prompt. Don't know the root password. The userid 'admin' and 'password' appears to do something.

How i can reset the password in a enterasys C3G124-48, if lose it

Before trying anything too drastic, I'd try using the username "admin" without the quotes and leaving the password blank. If that doesn't work, then you'll have to use the reset switch that's located on the back of the switch (number 1 in the pic below). nickmyers46.jpg

The following steps are taken from the manual for the switch.
1. Press-and-hold the reset switch while the switch device is operational. This change of the login password to the default password will be indicated through CLI only.
2. Logon the device management. You can now logon to the switch through the console port and assign a new password using the command line interface (CLI).

Installing the Ink Tanks

The first time you connect a device that plugs into a universal serial bus (USB) port, Windows automatically installs a driver for that device. After a driver is installed, you can disconnect and reconnect the device without performing any additional steps.
Before you install your device Check the instructions included with the device to determine whether a driver should be installed before you connect the device. Typically, Windows detects a new device after you connect it, and then installs the driver automatically. However, some devices require you to install the driver before plugging the device in.
Also, while most devices that have power switches should be turned on before you connect them, others require that you turn them on during the installation process. Because of issues like this, it's a good idea to read the instructions included with a new device before you connect it.
If the instructions that came with your device contradict the information in this topic, follow the instructions that came with the device.
Plugging your device in If your USB device1.gif uses a power cord, you should connect the device to a power source and turn it on before connecting it.
Next, determine which USB port you want to connect your device to. If your computer has USB ports1.gif on the front, consider using one of those if you plan to frequently connect and disconnect the device.


Set up a device to sync in Windows Media Player You can use Windows Media Player to copy music, videos, and pictures from your Player library to a portable device, such as a compatible MP3 player. This process is called synchronization or syncing.
There are two methods for syncing items to a device: automatically or manually. When you connect a device to your computer for the first time, Windows Media Player selects the sync method that works best for your device, depending on the device's storage capacity1.gif and the size of your Player library. After your device is set up the first time, you can choose a different sync method if you want.

  1. Start the Player, turn on your device, and then connect it to your computer. If prompted, select the AutoPlay option to sync the device using Windows Media Player.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If the Player has selected to sync your device automatically, click Finish. When you do so, the Player will sync your entire library to your device. After that, your device will automatically sync every time you connect it to your computer while Windows Media Player is running.
    • If the Player has selected to sync your device manually, click Finish. Then, in the Sync tab, you can select the files and playlists you want to sync manually. For more information, see Sync manually in Windows Media Player.

Remove a ACE from an ACL using CLI

Sure thing:

First to enable the web interface, try command:

ip http server

Also try:
ip http port 80

That will enable it on the default port

As for the ACL's I looked at the documention and I believe the syntax is to put a deny in front of the command and that will remove it.

Of course the GUI will be easier to deal with

Problem with CLI

It sounds like the DB connector still has a few pinouts set up incorrectly. Nokia has exact specs listed for pinouts on their website. I recommend matching that up perfectly. If that doesn't work then the console port could be bad, but that is rare.
