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

 

Tab
 Completes a partial command name entry. When you enter a unique set of characters and press the Tab key, the system completes the command name. If you enter a set of characters that could indicate more than one command, the system beeps to indicate an error. Enter a question mark (?) immediately following the partial command (no space). The system provides a list of commands that begin with that string.
 
Delete or Backspace
 Erases the character to the left of the cursor.
 
Return
 At the command line, pressing the Return key performs the function of processing a command. At the "---More---" prompt on a terminal screen, pressing the Return key scrolls down a line. 
 
Space Bar
 Allows you to see more output on the terminal screen. Press the space bar when you see the line "---More---" on the screen to display the next screen. 
 
Left arrow1 
 Moves the cursor one character to the left. When you enter a command that extends beyond a single line, you can press the Left Arrow key repeatedly to scroll back toward the system prompt and verify the beginning of the command entry.
 
Right arrow1 
 Moves the cursor one character to the right.
 
Up arrow1 or Ctrl-P
 Recalls commands in the history buffer, beginning with the most recent command. Repeat the key sequence to recall successively older commands.
 
Down arrow1 or 
Ctrl-N
 Return to more recent commands in the history buffer after recalling commands with the Up Arrow or Ctrl-P. Repeat the key sequence to recall successively more recent commands.
 
Ctrl-A
 Moves the cursor to the beginning of the line.
 
Ctrl-B
 Moves the cursor back one character.
 
Ctrl-D
 Deletes the character at the cursor.
 
Ctrl-E
 Moves the cursor to the end of the command line.
 
Ctrl-F
 Moves the cursor forward one character.
 
Ctrl-K
 Deletes all characters from the cursor to the end of the command line.
 
Ctrl-L and Ctrl-R
 Redisplays the system prompt and command line.
 
Ctrl-T
 Transposes the character to the left of the cursor with the character located at the cursor.
 
Ctrl-U and Ctrl-X
 Deletes all characters from the cursor back to the beginning of the command line.
 
Ctrl-V and Esc Q
 Inserts a code to indicate to the system that the keystroke immediately following should be treated as a command entry, not as an editing key.
 
Ctrl-W
 Deletes the word to the left of the cursor.
 
Ctrl-Y
 Recalls the most recent entry in the delete buffer. The delete buffer contains the last ten items you have deleted or cut. Ctrl-Y can be used in conjunction with Esc Y.
 
Ctrl-Z
 Ends configuration mode and returns you to the EXEC prompt.
 
Esc B
 Moves the cursor back one word.
 
Esc C
 Capitalizes the word at the cursor.
 
Esc D
 Deletes from the cursor to the end of the word.
 
Esc F
 Moves the cursor forward one word.
 
Esc L
 Changes the word at the cursor to lowercase.
 
Esc U
 Capitalizes from the cursor to the end of the word.
 
Esc Y
 Recalls the next buffer entry. The buffer contains the last ten items you have deleted. Press Ctrl-Y first to recall the most recent entry. Then press Esc Y up to nine times to recall the remaining entries in the buffer. If you bypass an entry, continue to press Esc Y to cycle back to it.
