Using console port on 3550 as "terminal server" ?

I assume this cannot be done, but would appreciate if anyone knowing that it works tells me how to do it. The idea is to connect remotely to the console port of another unit via the console port of a 3550 switch. Is EMI sw version needed,

or is it impossible anyhow ? What TCP port no is to be used ? (2000?)

I'm not clear about exactly how you want to set this up, but you can connect a console cable to the switch and reverse telnet to it from the terminal server. Here is a link with more information on how to set this up. (the link also includes details about cable pinouts, etc)

Thanks, for Your suggestion. But it is to be done with the 3550 as the terminal server. And then I only have the console port which does not seem capable to

support the necessary commands.

Hello,

I have quite the same task to be analyzed. Have you managed to find out is that possible or not?

Thanks,

Have not found any solution. The IOS on the 3550 is rather limited and there is not support for some commands I assume (maybe) could have done it.
