The Huawei 1220f router is am trying to configure just gets to the following prompt and freezes.(below in yellow)

This is the second router tested.

  Press any key to get started

After completing booting , there's still no any response when user enter any command like “Enter” . 

It looks like the router is freezing .
Alarm Information
none
Handling Process
modify the parameter of flow control in SecureCRT , the problem is solved.

By default , the parameter of "RTS/CTS" is selected , cancel it then login , the freezon issue disappear , everything becomes working fine.


Root Cause
1. check the booting process, no abnormal things , no alarm , the booting should be ok.

2. user is login the router with the tool of SecureCRT through console port , try to advice to login router with another tools such as Putty , It's no similar issue when using Putty to login . doubt it's caused by the tool .
Suggestions
most of loginning issues caused by the setting of flow control parameter when using SecureCRT to login device , pay attention to that and cancel the parameter of "RTS/CTS" , the freezon issue can be solved in most circumstances .
