7102 console access

Hi,
I just received a used 7102 secure router and was wandering how to access the device. Surely I have no information on the configuration loaded on the device.
I was trying to access it via the console port, but no reply.
Is there a way to reset to factory default or similar?

thanks,
molnars

Re: 7102 console access

Here is the documentation on the 7100 series - I had a quick look through but can't find any method of resetting the router except by erasing the config.

It's odd that you don't get anything through the console port - have you set up your terminal session properly?

---
CLI
To initially access the CLI, connect the COM port on your workstation to the
console port on the front panel of the router. Use the serial cable (5184-1894)
that was shipped with the ProCurve Secure Router. Then run terminal session
software such as Tera Term or HyperTerminal on your workstation, setting
the following parameters for the session:
â   Baud Rate = 9600
â   Parity = None
â   Data Bits = 8
â   Stop Bits = 1
â   Flow Control = None
---

Also, I've found with some of the switches I am not able to establish a console session until I reboot the device with the serial cable plugged in - it may or may not work in your case.

Cheers,

Re: 7102 console access

Hi Joel,
thanks for the reply. Which document did you find the way to erase the configuration?

I was able to connect after a reboot of the router. The password was a different issue.

Thanks,

Re: 7102 console access

The basic management guide - the command should be:

"erase startup-config"

So you were able to perform a password recovery?
