I have a used 2600 that I want to learn on, I am going to make a rollover
cable. How do I reset to factory defaults and what Ip will I use for console
with the rollover cable?

Thank you

Then do:

enable
copy run start


You really need to learn how to use the Cisco website to find out this
sort of information, or you are going to have a lot of difficulty
learning.

After you do get the private hyperterminal then setup a new connection
using com 1 and plug in RJ45-DB9 serial adapter into 1st serial port on
PC and from that plug rollover cable into CON port on router.
Set the connection (COM1 properties in hyperterminal) using the
defaults except change the baud rate to 9600, and change the flow
control to none.

Assuming you can enter the router (you know enable password) you can
just "erase start" to clear the config. Otherwise you can do password
recovery for your 2600, I think the other guy posted the URL for
password recovery.

Just plug it in, point HyperTerminal to your com port, 8-N-1-N, and type:

write erase

reload

If I connect the rollover cable, I setup windows terminal window to connect
and it asks for an IP to connect, I do not have the ip to connect via tcpip.
The only other option is com 1. There is no hard reset as well?

Thanks for your patience and help.

You need to use com1. At the other end of the rollover cable is a db9
to rj45 adaptor.

Download hyperterminal private edition:
http://www.hilgraeve.com/htpe /
and use that. (Its what Cisco uses in its labs)

If you don't know the ip address, you can't connect using IP.
There is no hardware reset, as its the software that makes Cisco
different from everything else.

Should come with the router. If not, talk to anybody who's got a stack
of Cisco kit. Chances are they've got a dozen lying around. Maybe
publish your whereabouts and some generous soul nearby might send you
one.

Otherwize do a search for "cisco rollover" on ebay, and make sure you
get the kit with all the connectors.

(This is a Cisco 2600 router, right? Not a Cat 2600 switch)


Re: HOW DO YOU RESET TOFACTORY A CISCO 2600


Correct, router.

Do you connect to the switches differently?

Thanks again...

Modern switches connect exactly the same way.

But the Cat 2600 is so ancient as to be useless.
