My company bought a secondhand Brocade 4100 switch. Now i try to set it so i can connect a EMC CX500 system but I have trouble setting up the switch.
After connecting a serial cable from the switch to the management laptop there is a verry slow response. In first nothing appears on the screen(using putty), but after tapping the "enter" key several times the login line appears on the screen. When i try to type the username I need to tap the several key's repeatedly until the are registerd.
Does anyone know what the problem is and how i can solve this? I tried several cables and different connection settings.
With kind regards,

If the switch is not in Productive environemnt, i would you try to reset to Factory Default.
NOTE: before you do that, save all License from "licenseshow" output.
btw, can you post here "errshow" output please ?
--->>> I also can not reach the switch using IP.
check if any ipfilter parameters as be set or change, for details refer "ipfilter" command in CLI Guide

I can not login. Sometimes a key gets recognized at the first hit, sometimes after tapping the key several times. This is not a problem for the username, as you can see the character on the screen, but the problem is the password. As you don't see the password i don't know if the keystroke is recognized.

then try to reboot and see if you get any kind of useful info during boot process. You could attach to the post, the boot process output in case you see something interesting...

that really nice new.
you opened the threads as "...slow console response"
those understood by me, you can login but have slow connection.
now you post, --->>> "I can not login."
maybe, if you are not able to explain the problem take a PIC from you mobile phone cam and post here.
My question is follow:
Are you able to do a Login or no ?
