I'm having problem logging into the console port of the USR TotalSwitch.

I have my terminal program set to COM1, 9600 8/N/1 Flow:None and the emulation I have tried ANSI and VT100 as well as few other.

However, I'm only getting junk character when I connect.  Am I doing something wrong.

Any Help would be appreciated.


RE: TotalSwitch

On the USR TOTALswitch. use a null modem cable with all the needed adapters and gender changers, and set your com port to 19200 8 N 1. Now I just need to hack the password.

RE: TotalSwitch

The default password on a Total Switch is blank, just hit carraige
return and this should bring you to the configuration menu

To find a lost password complete the following steps:
1. At the password prompt enter "ctrl-x b g". i.e. Press "ctrl" and "x"
together, then type "b" then "g"
2. Press "RETURN"
3. If asked for a password type "amber"
4. You should see a ">>" prompt
5. Type "dump 1e1b14"
6. You should see the password hidden in this screen
N.B. It may appear in a format that has every letter twice. e.g. If the
password was "REPAIR", it may appear as "RREEPPAAIIRR"
