Currently looking to configure a 2511 that is behind an ASA5520 (setup on a DMZ), to allow the use of its asynchronous lines for use as console or aux connections on other 2500 and 2600 series routers. The aim of the project is to allow a console connection from the outside world through the 2511 via one of the asynchronous lines. If anyone has used an asynchronous port as a connection for a console or aux link to another router for this purpose, I'd love to chat with you!

Thank you for the reply. Had actually set a portion of this up this morning without checking back here for answers. The loopback interface is key. Eveything is up and running and I can telnet to all of the twelve routers currently hanging off of the asynchronous lines (octal cables) on the 2511. The article you provided has given me additional information which is greatly appreciated. Now to setup those menus for ease of use...

Thanks again,
