Restore Factory and set IP on Switch Enterasys



Windows Vista and Windows 7 only support the private edition of HyperTerminal. Windows 7 does not even ship with HyperTerminal anymore. The private edition is NOT FREE for commercial use. Its license requires you purchase the application if used commercially. Or use a old version ripped for Windows XP from here. (not tested yet, not will be aborted here – instead we choose use PuTTY)

PuTTY (HyperTerminal replacement)

If you’re looking for a free and solid application to use for your serial COM connections, we try PuTTY. It’s free for commercial and private use, and takes up a 444KB of disk space.

Install on Windows

Download the latest Windows MSI installer of PuTTY from here and just follow the install steps.

Install on Ubuntu Linux

sudo apt-get install putty

Setup a Serial Console Connection using PuTTY

  1. Connect your serial cable on PC (serial port) and switch (serial console port).
  2.  Launch PuTTY, and Select the Connection type as “Serial”.
    Using Putty to connect to Switch using serial port

    Note: On Windows the serial line is COMX, here X it’s a number of your available port (see on Device Manager on “Ports (COM & LPT)”). For Linux, type dmesg | grep tty to see the enable COM ports.

  3. Click on “Open” button to establish the connection. The Device login page will be displayed. Use the default username, user is “admin” and password is “” [“Enter Key”]

Restore to Factory Default

  3. When prompted for password, type “administrator”

  5. Select option “Reset the system”, type “8” – answer “Y(es)”
