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.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk801/tk36/technologies_configuration_example09186a008014f8e7.shtml

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 172.21.1.1

!

interface Loopback1

ip address 172.21.1.1 255.0.0.0

!

line aux 0

session-timeout 20

no exec

exec-timeout 0 0

Please rate if helpful.
