This will detail the steps involved in getting your Cisco 67x into debug mode. Before trying this a few key points to remember are:
  • Have a terminal program installed, the instructions linked below assume you are using Hyperterminal on a Windows box. However, if you can terminal in on any OS then the instructions below should work.
  • UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES type the command "es 5" at the debug prompt, it will turn the router into a paperweight. To reiterate DO NOT TYPE "es 5".
  • Debug mode gives you alot of power over the router. DO NOT FIDDLE AROUND IN DEBUG MODE.

Keeping those things in mind, here are the directions.
  • Terminal in to the router.
  • Once in at the "User Access Verification" prompt, unplug the power cord from the back of the router.
  • While holding down CTRL+C, plug the router back in.
  • The router should say "Hello" and spew a bunch of garbage
  • Press enter until you see a "=>" prompt.

You are now in debug mode. From here you can flash the router with a new version of CBOS (if the conventional method does not work), or recover a forgotten exec password.
