it sounds like the conserver parts are correct.  you might have just
gotten the port "stuck" on the cisco.  if you have software flow control
on and happened to hit ctrl-s, you could try typing ctrl-q to get it
going again.  another option is to tell conserver to disconnect from
that port (which lets the cisco semi-reset the port, hopefully) and then
reconnect...use '^Ecd' and then '^Eco'.  if things are still are hung,
then something on the host is probably confused and you may want to log
into the box via a different method (ssh?), look for processes attached
to the console, and start killing them off (to hopefully reset things).
