Can the aux/console port on an 871 router function as a true aux port or is it really console port with aux port-like functionality?
The reason why I am asking is because I having a tough time getting a modem dial-in connection to work to the 871 router and I read that there are differences between these ports; for example, a console port does not provide flow control where as an aux port can.
The 871 supports both dial backup and out-of-band management on its virtual auxiliary port with an external modem connected to it. A limited set of modems and terminal adapters has been tested, but any Hayes-compatible modem or terminal adapter can be used to connect to this port.
The console port will behave like a standard Cisco auxiliary (AUX) port if configured as such and can provide bit rates up to 115.2 KB/S. Also the dialer interface does provide flow control.
Please see figure 13-9 for configuration information
