How to use front panel to reset to factory defaults?
(gory info below)
ebay-acquired PortserverII/16port PN 50000309-03 SN V-01732746, looks very alive. I am impressed by most of the online digi documentation, but cannot deciper front panel factory reset sequence (havent learned ANY front panel tricks yet).
Cabled to minicom/Terminal port with SW or no flow,
using just RxD, TxD, and ground,
pins RxD and TxD look nice and green on my BreakoutBox
and at one point I had a
prompt, but didnt know enough to try dbsp. I have not changed the cabling, but after many power resets I have not gotten the login: prompt again. Thanks for any tips!
