Have been playing with my Cisco SR520 firewall and managed to get it to hang at the following screen.  "Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog?"  It will take no input or allow me to ctrl-c out.  Any suggestions on what to try next to get it responsive ISO Error

What happens when you go through the initial system configuration?  Or does the machine just lock at that point?

Go through the initial configuration and then see if you can connect to it via the network.

Verify that you have disabled all handshaking for the serial port (xon/xoff and hardware handshake dts/cts).

If it dont take any input you have some issues with the serial communication. Verify handshaking as above and replace the cabling.

I like it when it is simple.  Thanks for the quick response.  Turned off xon/xoff and away it went.

Thanks
