Re : Configuring a terminal server on a 2821 router .....

Unanswered Question
Jul 8th, 2008


I am configuring a 2821 router as a terminal server but somehow I could not access the console ports on the router. In this case, on R1.

Below are the basic configuration on the 2811 as the access router.


ip host R1 2001


interface Loopback1

ip address



line con 0

transport input all

line 1 16



When I try connecting to the R1 router from the access-server, I get

the error message 'remote host refused connection'.

Has anyone encountered any similar issues like this before ?

Pls advice,

- sn -

I have this problem too.

Assuming you don't have an ACL you will want to add the login command under your line VTY. I'm not sure how you want to control passwords for your router, but you can specify one there also. Here is an example below.

line vty 0 15


password (password)
