how to crack password of 3 com 3250 switch without hammpering the exsisting configuration or how to backup i have only console port i dont know ip of sw1 & 2


RE: 3 com switch

It should work for all the switches as there is no way to disable the recover facility...

"The password recovery feature allows you to reset the
admin user password by logging into the unit via the
console port using the username recover and
password recover. If you power cycle the unit within
30 seconds then the password will be reset and you
will be prompted to enter a new password on restart.
There is no command to disable the password
recovery feature."


The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them

RE: 3 com switch

I have 3com 4500 switch.
My problem is that ip packets with same src $ dst address do not goes out through the dst port.
i whould like to set the switch to be agnostic to layer 3 addresses.
1. How do i set switch to work with L2 only with no routing at all? ( like cisco command "no ip routing")?
2. How do i disable QOS on the switch?

You should open your own thread, instead of hijacking this one and confusing the issue of the original poster.
