Can I connect to a console port using the AUX port??

Hi I want to use my AUX port on my remote 1720 router to manage a remote satelite modem I have there.

So I want to use the aux port to connect to the console port of the satelite modem. Is this possible and if it is what the best way to do this.. I will have to see the menus on the sat modem.

Please hope this was clear??

Re: Can I connect to a console port using the AUX port??

yes you can do this on the router all you need to configure is

line aux 0

transport input telnet

then you telnet to the line # of the aux port

do a sh line , whatever the line # if the aux telnet to that i.e.

routers loopback ip is 1.1.1.1

aux port is 2065

router# telnet 1.1.1.1 2065

I do not know how to configure your modem to accept a connection .

This is nice thanx but I don't access to my router I only want to access the modem via the router aux port.

So I need to know how to configure the router that I can open a connection via the aux port to the modem which will be connected on the aux port and then I need to get the modem screens on my screen so i can configure the modem or manage it.

All you need to do is -

on line aux 0

modem InOut

transport input all

Then you can telnet to the router on the correct port number. On my router it is port 2065 to get to the aux port. You may need to do a "show line" command to find the correct port number to telnet to. Add 2000 to the tty number shown.

It is good to create a loopback interface to telnet to to access the aux line.

Hope this helps - let me know if you need more info.
