When I connect using the aux port I don't see the initial boot but get a login (password) prompt. When I connect using the console port, I get all the boot data and running config.
I can enter keystrokes in both scenarios, and it seems to accept the keystrokes, but when I try to do a password recovery, it doesn't respond and I can't get to rommon mode.
I tried all the possibilities for flow control and stop bits. I also tried NT old way to break boot. Changed baud to 1200, held space key down for 15 seconds, and then reconnected at 9600. It looks like the cable is OK since it takes my attempts at passwords, etc. so I don't know what else to try. I always think there is some minor setting that needs to be changed to
