Securing POTS Dial in

Unanswered Question
Sep 27th, 2010

Hello all,

I have a Cisco 2811 with an analog modem in WIC Slot 2 for out-of-band management. I can connect to i dialing the telephone number of the line. Then I can authenticate on the router using locally configured username / password. (I am using Hyperterminal Client of Windows for this).

I would like to secure this thing somehow. I don't want to allow everyone in the whole wide world to call the modem and try to login my router.

What is the best way to secure this? I have thought about setting up a ppp chap connection, bur I don't really know if this works.

How would you do this?

Thanks & Regards

I have this problem too.

To be honest: This  comment does not help me at all.

A password is set, I want more security. Let's say, a customer demands it.

Any idea?
