Turn debugging off on cisco router
Posted on 2011-03-11
I've made the silly mistake of turning on debugging and terminal monitor on a Cisco 1800 series router I only have console access to (no telnet or SSH). The below commands were used:
Router# debug crypto verbose
Router# debug crypto isakmp
Router# term monitor
The router is running fine, however, due to continuous debugging output flooding the console, I'm unable to make any changes or enter any commands, even to turn debugging off.
The router is in a remote location and I do not have physical access to it, I can however get someone to reboot it but not much more than that.
What can I do to turn debugging off to be able to manage the router again? I do have a config backup from today when debugging wasn't turned on.
Appreciate all help.
