Refer to "Alarm Troubleshooting" in the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting and Maintenance Guide for complete alarm definitions, trouble notifications, and fault recovery procedures. For a list of conditions, refer to "TL1 Command Components" in this book. The alarms are listed alphabetically by alarmable object:

7.3 Echo

In order to improve telnet functionality for automated systems, the echo function has been turned off since Release 3.0. This change is transparent to users running standard UNIX-compliant telnet clients; however, PC users may need to change their client setup to enable "local echo." This is normally accomplished by a pull-down menu or a preference attribute.

To test the local echo on your PC client, use the RTRV-HDR command. If you receive a response but no data, set local echo ON. Cisco recommends that you close any windows containing sensitive information after exiting a TL1 session.
