No console response for HP 700/96 connected to rx2600

I have an HP 700/96 (port 3) connected to the console port of an rx2600. It was working (somewhat) however with a lot of garbage on the screen. In my attempts to modify the terminal configs. to eliminate the garbage, I am no longer able to get any response from the rx2600. I reset all menu's to the default values to no avail.

Hi Jim

1. Switch off the terminal, keeping D key pressed, power it ON and then release. Terminal will restore to factory default setting.

2. Setup XON/XOFF to off, baud rate 9600, handshake to OFF

Hope it helps.

It is possible to turn the remote setting of the terminal off, so that it doesn't send anything out. That softkey should have an asterisk by it, to indicate that you are not set to local.

Mahesh,

This definitely helped. Something else I realized: Setting back to defaults changed the serial port being pointed to. (One of those obvious things I should have checked.)

Thanks a lot for your help.

Oh yeah, THAT! Good humor, Jim. I just saw this posting and had to laugh. I've seen this so many times it's almost funny, almost. I get into different data centers and find that somebody has used the crash cart on something other than HP gear and has modified the port and not changed it back when they're done. Always fun to waste 10 or 15 minutes figuring out why you can't get access.......You'd think I'd learn, wouldn't you?
