When I connect to the switch using the serial interface, I get the username prompt but nothing I type seems to register. I've tried both Hyperterminal and SecureCRT, with no luck. Am I doing something wrong? Do I have a wrong setting on my terminal app? I'm using VT100 emulation, 8n1 with no flow control.
Use a console cable with following minimum pinout (the flat gray one with the RJ45- D9 type converter currently shipping with new P33xx switches will suffice): DB9 Console Port 1 ----------- 6 2 ----------- 3 3 ----------- 2 4 ----------- 4 5 ----------- 5 6 7 ----------- 8 8 ----------- 7 9
Obviously the speed is set to 9600
maybe stop all sessions & try to re-establish a new one. The instruction manual warns u can only run one..
Hi, it sounds like its not receiving anything from your console. your settings sounds correct for your serial comms etc.. if you can see the data coming in on the screen (ie user prompt). Check your serial cable to ensure you have actually wired it up correctly, perhaps the wire for Rx has fallen off / bad solder joint (at the network switch end), or could be the Tx end as well (at the computer end). check that all the pins look okay and aren't bent at the computer serial port, you could also try another serial port or another computer. I use Hyperterminal for many applications. You may also need to use a null modem serial cable (i dont know what you are using).

telnet to the IP address of the Cisco switch
Enter the telnet access password for the Cisco swict when requested, and then the "Enter" key.
Type "enable" at the command prompt, and then the "Enter" key.
Enter the Privileged Exec password when requested at the command prompt, and then the "Enter" key. Then enter "configuration terminal" at the command prompt, and then the "Enter" key.
Type "interface fastethernet0/1," replacing the "fastethernet0/1" with the name of an interface in which you wish to enable PoE, and then the "Enter" key. Then, while in interface configuration mode, type "power inline auto" and then the "Enter" key. Repeat this step for each interface in which PoE is required.
Type "end" at the command prompt and then the "Enter" key, copy running-config
Below is some commands to run, I don't have any power on the interface but this will show you if this is working...
SW1#sh power inline fastEthernet 0/1
Available:360(w) Used:0(w) Remaining:360(w)
Interface Admin Oper Power Device Class Max
--------- ------ ---------- ------- ------------------- ----- ----
Fa0/1 auto off 0.0 n/a n/a 15.4
Run this command to see the interface is up.....
SW1# sh interface fastEthernet 0/1 ' in protocol
FastEthernet0/1 is up, line protocol is up (connected)
SW1#sh cdp interface fastEthernet 0/1
FastEthernet0/1 is up, line protocol is up
Sending CDP packets every 60 seconds
Holdtime is 180 seconds
To re-enable the Console access requires the SW2900 series to be reset to its default settings via the WEB INTERFACE
- Web Interface
- Device >Configuration >Initialize To
change the Default User "ADMIN" password it is necessary to use the
-Once the unit has successfully booted and the prompt presented
-Enter "password" (without "")
-Enter "admin" when the system prompts for User
-Press the "Enter" key when the system prompts for "Old Password" (the ADMIN password was reset by the Web Interface commands)
-Enter "" when the system prompts for the New Password (where "" is the new product ADMIN password)
-Enter "" when the system
prompts to confirm the New Password In order to complete the
configuration it is necessary to save the configuration via the WEB
-Device > Configuration > Save Symptom:
SW2900 Baseline Switch - Default console access disabled following password change
From the web interface, the default user "admin" password is changed and console access is disabled Cause:
When applying the new password, by default
the service-type is set to "telnet". When applied, the default
"terminal" setting is removed thus disabling console access.
It's not the username and password from your ISP. If you try to access your router and you have not changed anything, use the following values: username = admin password = admin
Once in the router interface, you will have to configure the router for your DSL-modem (I guess it's DSL since Windstream does not produce cable modems.) Here fill in the username and password your ISP provided you with.
open up internet exploer on any machine and type ip address into the url bar the default is usually 192.168.1.1 but yours maybe different to know your ip address open up your command prompt and type in ipconfig
to open your command prompt in windows xp click run from the start menu and type in cmd
if it is Vista then type cmd in the search and choose the first option
This is from the Cajun P333R manual but it should be very similar if not identical.
arp timeout Command
Use the arp timeout command to configure the amount of time that an entry
remains in the ARP cache. To restore the default value, 14400, use the no form of
The syntax for this command is: arp timeout <seconds>
The syntax for the no form of this command is: no arp timeout <seconds>
To set the arp timeout to one hour:
Router(configure)# arp timeout 3600
To restore the default arp timeout:
Router(configure)# no arp timeout
ip-address IP address, in dotted decimal format, of the station
hardware-address 48-bit address of the local data link
seconds The amount of time, in seconds, that an entry
remains in the arp cache.
After changing all the necessary parameters using the CLI, use the write
command to save your system configuration. If you receive any error messages,
your configuration has not been saved. You must correct the errors and re-issue the
Notification of write errors is presented in a two column display:
? The left column contains the parameter values that you set in this session and
need to be changed.
? The right column contains the parameter values currently saved in the
Wait 15 seconds for confirmation of the write process. Then exit Privileged level by
typing exit at the prompt. For example, CajunP116-priv# exit.
The cursor changes to CajunP116> to indicate that you are in Normal level.
Verify that all the parameters were accurately saved by using the show all or
show all list command.
The Cajun P116 is now ready for cabling and operation. You may exit your CLI
Hey Eric, I do use same Avaya switch at my lab at office. To me what you have to do is quite simple, first of all you have to get from your network administrator the following info:
- Free IP to assign to the switch
(If you ping such IP from a machine of same subnet, there will not be an answer).
Then log as superuser (#) and do this:
1. Type set interface inband
Replacing , and with the VLAN, IP address and netmask provided by your network administrator and press Enter.
(for VLAN you can list them and decide which one to use, but normally you should use 1)
2. Type reset and press Enter to reset the stack.
3. After the Reset, perform login again as superuser.
4. Type set ip route , replacing and with the destination and gateway IP addresses. (If you want all packets not from your subnet to be send to the gateway, then use 0.0.0.0 as destination, list routes set on device for more info)
5. Press Enter to save the destination and gateway IP addresses.
That's all. Your switch will be rechable from your same subnet and from other networks if your gateway is working properly and there's no other element blocking you the access.
