What has to be done to a catalyst 4507 to allow remote dial from a US robotics modem?

Hello,

an option would be to connect the modem to the console port of the switch.

Check this document for details:

Connecting a Modem to the Console Port on Catalyst Switches

Re: Remote Dial In

Hello,

to my best knowledge, the Catalyst 4500 has no AUX, just a console port...or are you referring to the management port ?

Re: Remote Dial In

yes sorry the management port.

the modem was previously configured in a 3550 fiber switch with an aux port. that switch has been replaced with a 4507 catalyst. i need to restore the modem to the catalyst. can i do this on the management port so that i can leave the console port open. i have dual sups but can only console into the active one

Hello,

I don´t think you can use the 10/100 management port for anything else than an Ethernet connection...if it were a serial port, you could configure it for async connections, but with an Ethernet port, I don´t think this is possible...

GP
