Remote console to other switches/routers

Hi All

We have ordered a Cisco 2610XM with 2 line cards with 16ports. The intention is to connect all our switches and routers to the Cisco 2610XM so that we can remote console to each of them.

Please how can I go about configuring for terminal services? What doc can I use to configure the cards and the Cisco 2610XM to achieve this?

Re: Remote console to other switches/routers

This link should provide the information you are looking for.

This is for a 2500 series terminal/console server, but the information should apply to your application as well.

Re: Remote console to other switches/routers

Would a 2509 or 2511 still be more than sufficient to provide Terminal Server access to a small test lab remotely? I'm building a small test lab at home and would like to be able to access it from remote locations. Budget is definitely a limiting factor, however, if necessary I'd try to acquire a more current router. Would a 2611 (not XM model) be far better than a 2509/11?

Thank you.
