I am looking for a 2800 router working as a Terminal server or console server.
I need console connections to 4 Cisco devices from the terminal server and the terminal server also needs to have the capability to dial in.
I am not clear about which wic/hwic would be suitable to meet this requirement? Will hwic-4a/s suffice?
Also, i read that the old routers used octal cable that had 8 RJ-45 plugs to connect to router consoles. I am not sure if i can use the same octal cable even in 2800 routers.
For dial-in, i believe that a modem connected to an AUX port should be good enough on the terminal server? Or is there any other better option?
Looking forward to your kind suggestions
Thanks a lot
