Can not connect to router


I am currently running into this problem when i try to connect to some new devices that were just installed.

xxx-xxx-xx#ssh -l (userid):139 xxx-xxx-xx


[Connection to xxx-xxx-xx closed by foreign host]

The device im connecting from is a 3745 router.

When i check the line interface everything looks in order

line 80 160

session-timeout 1440  output

login authentication admin-vty

terminal-type ANSI

no exec

transport preferred none

transport input telnet ssh

transport output all

stopbits 1

This problem persists even when ports are swapped, you are able to log 1 time into the device but after you leave it constantly gives you this error.


Can not connect to router

Hi ,

I belive that your issue here is "no exec" on the line . Remove this and retry.


Re: Can not connect to router

I thought the no exec-timeout option just set it not to timeout the vty lines?
