Trying to telnet from router to router across frame relay (details below). Can ping OK but when I telnet it gets as far as telling me the session is open but I never get prompted for a password. I hit enter and every key combination I can think of. I have tried entering the telnet password despite not being prompted. Nothing. The connection times out anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes after connecting or after hitting enter a few times. A field tech said he could telnet to the router from the ethernet side (when he was on site before) but no one has actually demonstrated this to me.
This is what happens when I ping:
router#ping vrf ABC 192.168.0.2
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 192.168.0.2, timeout is 2 seconds:
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 84/85/88 ms
This is what happens when I telnet:
router#telnet 192.168.0.2 /vrf ABC
Trying 192.168.0.2 ... Open
<some time later>
[Connection to 192.168.0.2 closed by foreign host]
Below are some configuration details.
Telnetting from: Cisco 3845 Version 12.4(16a), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)
Telnetting to: Cisco 2821 Version 12.4 (sorry, that's all the details I have on this one -- from a show run printout)
