Telnet access fails

I have turned on a switch which I had not used for a couple of weeks. Tried to get Telnet access to it (using a previously saved session) but that didn't work.
I did a "hard" reset on the switch and connected again (tried speeds between 9600 &115200)but the session halts after the following message:

"Waiting for Speed Sense. Press twice to continue."

If I press enter twice nothing happens.

Re: Telnet access fails

Hello,

what you are trying is not a telnet session, but a terminal session over serial console. Try to disable flow control in your terminal programm. Other serial settings: 9600, 8, N, 1

Re: Telnet access fails

Hello,

sometimes you need to hit more then two times until it works. Check you serial settings, 9600,8,N,1 with no flow control should work.

Have closed this thread and reopend one with the proper title:

Terminal session access fails

Session settings are as you guys suggested (it has worked before) and I did try hitting Enter more than once.
