Terminal Server Question

I have inherited a system that has a terminal server set up for remote connections. How do I get into the individual lines?

It is a:

dc4-tsv-02#sh inv

NAME: "2821 chassis", DESCR: "2821 chassis"

PID: CISCO2821 , VID: V04 , SN: FTX1222A00S

NAME: "High Speed Wan Interface card with 16 RS232 async ports(HWIC-16A)", DESCR: "High Speed Wan Interface card with 16 RS232 async ports(HWIC-16A)"

PID: , VID: V01 , SN: FOC12114NTR

NAME: "High Speed Wan Interface card with 16 RS232 async ports(HWIC-16A)", DESCR: "High Speed Wan Interface card with 16 RS232 async ports(HWIC-16A)"

PID: , VID: V01 , SN: FOC12114NXH

NAME: "Virtual Private Network (VPN) Module", DESCR: "Encryption AIM Element"

PID: AIM-VPN/EPII-PLUS , VID: V02 , SN: FOC12184MGV

and is running:

dc4-tsv-02#sh ver

Cisco IOS Software, 2800 Software (C2800NM-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.4(18a), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc3)

I looked at the confguration guide at javascript:newWin('http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk801/tk36/technologies_configuration_example09186a008014f8e7.shtml') and my TS does not have any of the "ip host" commands.

Is this important given that my connections are all async consoles? What is the syntax for connecting to the individual async lines? I tried connect, etc. to no avail. The lines are all set up like this one:

interface Async0/0/0

no ip address

encapsulation slip

The lines appear to be live:

dc4-tsv-02#sh line

0/0/9 11 TTY 9600/9600 - - - - - 2 0 0/0 -

etc.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Terminal Server Question

Hi

You should execute a reverse telnet session to the line the connection is attached to.

For example if your connection is on line 15 you need to telnet to the router on port 2015.

eg: telnet 10.1.1.1 2015

Hope this helps

Re: Terminal Server Question

Yes, that helped. I found the information through another source in the meantime (http://books.google.com/books?id=UbuEHLfhNmMC&pg=PA370&lpg=PA370&dq=connect+async+line+cisco+console&source=bl&ots=J5mBA0_clW&sig=fpvGz6W_xikAzImRdnaWZNMIoHs&hl=en&ei=aBnrSoqsHI2zlAfE9YCABQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=8&ved=0CCcQ6AEwBzgU#v=o...)

The "gotcha" here was to note that I needed to execute the telnet x.x.x.x zzzz from the terminal server host (x.x.x.x) itself.

Thanks for the assist though - I rated your post accordingly.
