Brocade 5000 switch serial connection

Hi all,

I am trying to connect a retired DS5000 switch to set factory default and IP to bring it online. When I try to connect through hyperterminal/putty with 9600,8,1,None,XON/XOFF/None ..., I am getting continuous ASCII characters scrolling out and I need to close the terminal to stop it.  How can intrepret and stop the scrolling and get a readable output OR how can I get a command prompt. Any help would be much appreciated..

Hi!

Did you try with 9600/8/N/1/None... it's the standard configuration for Brocade switches.

Regards.

Javier.
