Craziest thing. I have a router at a remote office and I can not telnet to either active port. I can ping it, it is passing traffic, I can telnet to devices on the other side of it. Here is the config, I would appreciate any ideas or trouble shooting suggestions.

Were you ever able to telnet into it?

Has the router rebooted recently?

How recent are the configurations you provided?

the config is a few weeks old. I was able to telnet it until a couple of weeks ago. the router was re-started this weekend.

Maybe the following was not saved and the router lost when it was rebooted:

line vty 0 4

password xxxxxxxx

Well, after working with TAC we fixed the problem. I just don't understand why it fixed it. We turned off "ip classless". When I entered the command "no ip classless" Telnet then began working. Really strange but it fixed the problem.
