2511 access server
I would like to access all the swithces and router w/ out removing the cable using the access server 2511 .. can I do that ? or I have to configure each device then see how I can connected then w/ Asynchronous Serial Interface Breakout Cable ..thanks
Can you please configure the loopback interface and use it instead of the ethernet interface.
And can you please post your configuration if the problem persists.
HTH, please rate all helpful posts,
If i understand you correct, you are trying to do reverse telnet from the 2511 to your devices, accordingly you'll need this configuration:
under the serial interface (If A/S):
under the async line:
transport input telnet
and connect the cables to the console of your devices.
Issue this command to establish a reverse Telnet connection from your 2511:
telnet x.x.x.x 2yyy or [2000+yyy]
The x.x.x.x represents the IP address of any up/up interface on the Cisco router (recommended to be a Loopback) and yyy is the line number to which you want to connect. If you have already configured the TTY line, you can issue the telnet command from anywhere on the network that can ping the x.x.x.x interface.
To disconnect, hit Ctrl-Shift-6 and then x to get back to the router prompt and then type in disconnect to close the connection.
Note: Make sure you close the connection or it will not work.
HTH, please rate if it does help,
