"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you have physical access connect a console cable to the console port and a serial port on your computer.  You may have to get serial to USB cable.

Default userid is admin if there is a password it should be admin also.

Set serial port connection settings

Bits per sec    :  9600
Data bits       :     8
Parity          :  none

If the switch has been previously configured and has user-id and password you can follow this to reset:
