This is the first time I've ever done this and I don't think the problem here is Cisco but thought I'd ask here in case someone else has been through the pain.
I need to set up a modem so I can dial in remotely to a Catalyst switch and get console access.
So I purchased a USR 56k modem and a DB9/DB25 M:M converter. I've tried to configure the modem as per instructions found on the Cisco technote (6320).
When dialling the modem, the modem does not auto answer when plugged into the console cable but it auto answers when plugged into the serial port of my PC. As soon as I disconnect, nothing.
Any ideas? Is there perhaps a feature which this modem doesn't have?
