Xyplex to router config

Does anyone know how to set up a Xyplex access server to access a rotues console port?

I found a solution:

My XYPLEX MAXserver 1600 Terminal Server config notes.

This is alot of peices I have pulled together to get my Maxserver 1600

(16port) working for my CCIE LAB rack. Since the Terminal server is not part

of the lab I need to spend my money on thing like ISDN

hardware. I was not able to find any instruction that let me put this config

behind me quickly. Since we need to focus our time working on CCIE lab task

(not the mysteries of Xplex Terminal server configs). I have put thess

instruction/notes together.

resources:

http://www.gno.org/~gdr/xyplex/

http://www.pimpworks.org/xyplex/

My system information getting started:

1)reset --->all light on

2)reset - hold--> until rotating lights stop and 15,16 go solid

3)hit return on console (after 20 seconds) type "access"(blind input) at

greeting hit return.

Terminal Server Configuration/Maintenance Menu

1. Display unit configuration

2. Modify unit configuration

3. Initialize server and port parameters

4. Revert to stored configuration

S. Exit saving configuration changes

X. Exit without saving configuration changes

Enter menu selection [X]: 1

XYPLEX instructiuons ---basic boot config-----------

Setting An MX-1600, MX-1608 or MX-1450 To Factory Defaults

Straighten a paper clip and press into the pin-size hole next to console LED

on the front panel of the

unit. All LEDs on the front of the unit will light up.

Press the paper clip in again and hold it in for 3-5 seconds. The LEDs will

light up in a sweeping fashion

from right to left, then left to right. When this sweeping stops, there will

be 2 or 3 LEDS to the right

lit, at this point release the paper clip.

The LEDs will light up in a countdown pattern to 1 (diagnostic test

pattern). Then they will all go out and

the RUN light will be flashing very fast. You should have a terminal

attached to one of the serial ports on

the back of the unit. Press the ENTER key several times for the port to

autobaud. You will see a text

display similar to this:

Terminal Server, Type 97, Rev G.00.00

Ethernet address 08-00-87-05-A1-16, port 2

Configuration in progress. Please wait

Type the password "access" (there is no password prompt and it will not

display the characters you type)

and then press ENTER on your keyboard. The menu below will display. Please

select the menu options and

answer the questions as detailed below to default your unit.
