I now have access to a used Catalyst 1900 that has been taken out of service. I grabbed my laptop, (so old it even has a serial port) and hooked up my console cable. I got nothing whatsoever out of the 1900 using Hyperterminal and the specified settings. Thinking I might be stupid or something, I connected to a 2501 Router with my console cable and that came right up.
Can the 1900 be locked? If I press the reset switch would that bypass whatever locks might be in place, or do you think the 1900 is toast?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have two Router sims that have the 1900 in them, but I'd like to experience the real thing.
