How do i enable power over ethernet on a cisco 3560

  1. 1. Password Recovery for a Cisco 3560 The Cisco Catalyst 3560 is a solid member of the Cisco networking equipment team; it contains the features that have made Cisco a market leader for many. Several passwords exist for the 3560, including the enable password, the secret password and the terminal password. It is no wonder that losing or forgetting passwords is a common occurrence. Another reason for password problems can be when vendors do not reset the passwords before a used Cisco 3560X is shipped to you. Do not panic---Cisco's Catalyst switches have a built-in a password recovery function to help you when you do not know the password. Instructions 1 Connect your computer to the switch using the blue serial cable that came with it. The 9-pin d-shell end plugs into the serial port of your computer, and the RJ-45 end plugs into the console port on the switch. 2 Boot up your computer and use any terminal emulator to build a terminal session for the Catalyst 3560. Set the terminal session settings to 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit and Xon/Xoff flow control. Press and hold the "Mode" button on the left front of the switch and plug in the switch power cable. Wait 5 seconds after the Status LED goes out and then release the "Mode" button. The SYST LED should begin to blink amber. Sponsored Links Free Password Manager Never Forget Your Passwords Again.
