We have about 900 2600 Cisco Routers which we use for Out-Of-Band Management Access to numerous Devices all across the states.
Recently one of our vendor warranties has reached the end of contract and with all the Remote Testing Units on Site we have come across a slight issue which i need a little 101 refresher course on.

My question is, I used to be able to determine whether the Hardware MODEM State (ex: noCTS* DSR DTR RTS) was physical or logical config issue. This was a LONG time ago. My memory escapes me now, but can anyone break it down as per how to differentiate noCTR, CTR* CTR and etc...
Thank you kindly,
