I am configuring my router through telnet for a long time. today when i
started telnet it was not working.
then i start checking gradually and when i ping my ethernet interface
it was unable to even ping that interface and i make ensure the following things.
1- Switch off / No firewall on my PC
2- both ips router interface and PC are from same network
3- telnet is enabled
4- even for troubleshooting purpose,i took different network ips
for pc and router interface
Please can any one help me that how i can findout wthat is the actual
fault and how can i check my ethernet interface.
Note: i can access my router through console cable
Thers is not need to take different network IP.
Check by this:
1) Connect console cable, Do telnet locally from router to same router's interface IP address. - What is response?
2) Check from another workstation that is available in same network.
3) check your workstation default gatway.
check your workstations routing table by MS-DOS command " netstat -rn "
4) See routers ARP, is it resolves your workstations IP address.
5) Is there any access-list present for telnet on router,
6) Are you able to ping your work station from your router?
7)Are you using Vista Operating system? - Then you have to start your telnet service from control panel " turn on / Off feature ".
