Hi Jorge,

I do not believe that you can connect to devices over console ports.

I have in the past connected from an aux port on a router to a console port on a switch using one of the old RJ45-RJ45 rollover cables Cisco used to ship with DB9-RJ45 adapters before they starting shipping DB9-RJ45 console cables.

You should be able to use the configuration in the document at the link below as a starting point.


This document is for a terminal server with 16 async ports. The config below should be ok for an aux port.


ip host switch 2001


interface Loopback1

ip address


line aux 0

session-timeout 20

no exec

exec-timeout 0 0

Please rate if helpful.
