2600 routers

Unanswered Question
Jul 16th, 2008

I am building a home lab. I have 4 2620 routers and 4 3550 switches. My question is can I use one of this routers to access the other routers and switches rather that moving the console cable every time I access the other devices? Also can one of the routers be used as a frame relay switch? Some one had a diagram and configuration posted previously I just can't find it.

I have this problem too.

Hi,

Actually if you configure properly you can access everything from everywhere via telnet, no console cables are needed unless you lock yourself out of something.

And yes the router can be used as a basic frame-relay switch good for lab purposes.

please rate post if it helps!

you'd better try dynamips.

if you have IP connectivity so you can use telnet.

for the LAB environment

conf t

line vty 0 4

logg sync

no login

privilege level 15

Yes, you can. But you have to have serial cards and cables.
