Problems encountered during password recovery often occur because users do not know what the break key sequence is for the (non-Cisco) software they are using. For software not listed above and for additional information, users should refer to the documentation for their individual software packages. If HyperTerminal is used on an NT workstation/server the latest version of HyperTerminal must be obtained for the break sequence to work.

Make sure the terminal settings are as follows:

VT100
8 data bits
1 stop bit
non parity
no flow control
