CLI

I'm new to Brocade switches and coming from a Cisco-only background.  My company just received the first of two MLXes and I’m trying to get familiar with the CLI.  The CLI doesn’t seem that bad, the only drawback I have at the moment is that I can’t backspace when consoled in.  Not sure if I’m just missing something there.  Any words of wisdom?  Thanks.

As Michael wrote:

Re: CLI

Thanks guys.  I was in console and Ctrl-H worked like a charm.  I was able to get the Mgt port on the network, so now I can access via Telnet and can now backspace to my hearts content.
