I have a Cisco 1720 that was taken out of production about 1 year ago. I need to use it for a few weeks and when I attempted to access it via the colsole port I get this:
Cisco1720 con0 is now available
Press RETURN to get started.
When I press return I get this:
% Authentication failed.
The it goes back to Press RETURN to get started.
I was going to try and reset the passwords, but the router will not accept any for of the BREAK command (I used the Cisco Reference).
Any help on resetting this would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to save the config, but I am wiling to start from scratch if I can just get started.
