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..
