GSP message

Hello All,

Does anyone know how to respond to the following GSP console message :

"[Read only - use ^Ecf for console write access.]"

I reset my GSP to add new usr ID & password. I telneted into the remote GSP lan connection, but I am receiving the message above. Please advise. Thanks.

Re: GSP message

Essentially, this is an informational message letting you know that someone else has taken control of the console .

If you were switching between the console and your telnet session or two telnet sessions then you would see these both places.

Its just letting you know that if you want to type instead of just read on that terminal, you'll need to type cntl-E then cf.

Best regards,

Re: GSP message

Press the keys accordingly as the message said. Sometimes it hangs and even after pressing the key it won't give any results.

#stty +resetGSP < /dev/GSPdiag1
Don't give up. Try till success...
