I just connectected comm-server 2511 to 2x 2610 router with async cable 8rj>45.. ethernet 1 goes to R1 and ethernet 2 goes to R2.. now I have 2950 switch that have only console port how do I connect the 2950 switch to the 2511 comm-server since it does not have any ethernet, my console port on 2511 is connected to my pc ..
I am very glade that you are enjoying your lab :)
Just to refresh you, here you are all that you need on the comm-server:
interface loopback 0
ip address x.x.x.x y.y.y.y
line 1 16
transport input telnet
and then do the reverse telnet:
telnet x.x.x.x 2nnn
where nnn = the line number, ex: if 8 then nnn = 008.
Before doing this do show line, and make sure that there is no * beside the line before doing this, and if there is a * do clear line x until the * disappear.
Take care and enjoy, and i am waiting for your next question :)
You are always welcomed :)
First use the CAB-OCTAL-ASYNC cable to connect all your devices to the comm-server to have console access to all your devices, afterwards we can discuss your lab needs and topology.
HTH, please do rate all helpful replies,
Use one of the Async interfaces from the comm-server to connect to the console port of the 2950.
