AS2509-RJ as Access Server ?

Can I use AS2509-rj as Access server for accessing other routers and switches via connecting lines to respective console ports as I am using ordinary 2509 ?

If it is possible, please come with suggestions to config.

Thanks.

Re: AS2509-RJ as Access Server ?

The AS2509-RJ has the same functionality as any 2500 access server. See the following link for details: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps233/products_white_paper09186a008009204e.shtml

A sample config for the purpose you want:

hostname LAB_ACC_SERV

!

ip subnet-zero

!

interface Ethernet0

ip address 1.1.1.169 255.255.255.0

!

interface Serial0

no ip address

!

interface Serial1

no ip address

!

ip classless

!

line con 0

exec-timeout 0 0

line 1 16

no exec

exec-timeout 0 0

transport input telnet

line aux 0

no exec

transport input telnet

!

end

You will need RJ-45 to RJ-45 rollover cables between ports on the access server and the console port on other routers.

You can find rollover cables in every kit that comes with a cisco router.

Re: AS2509-RJ as Access Server ?

Thanks for replay. I found same info on CCO, but problem is that config does not work. Same config works well on 2509 but not on this AS2509. Lines should be OK since they were used for dial in via modems before.

I just can't get connected.

Hi,

I take it your using an octal cable..to connect to your other routers console ports ?

Do a show line to see what lies you have Here is a example of an access server with an async 32 module on a 3620.

The 2509 has async 1-8

and the sh line will look like this

Router>sh line

The config is below for connecting to routers consoleAnd line 40 has modem on it for dial-in

Make sure you have a route from your local machine to the loopbac address 1.1.1.1 ping it

on windows box do a route add...

Then telnet to 1.1.1.1 2033 and you would be connected to r1

Try applying below to all routers in lab for easier admin less effort while working

line con 0

exec-timeout 0 0

Re: AS2509-RJ as Access Server ?

I am using rollover rj-45 cables since this is AS2509-RJ version. Is there a problem with cabling ?

No problems with routes since I am also using console to try to connect.

Whatever I do is not helping, no exec, exec-timeout 0 0 , modem Host etc...

Everybody tells me that I should use rollover cable to connect.

Can this be th issue ?
