You just take a roll cable and plug it from the aux port of one router to the console port of the other router. You will telnet to the router that you used the aux port on. You need to do a show line and find the line number of the aux port. You then add 2000 to this and this is the port number you telnet to.
It varies router to router and sometimes depends on the modules installed.
So if you do a show line and it says the aux port is at 65 you telnet to x.x.x.x 2065
It depends on the router that is asking for the username and password.
In some cases you will get asked twice. It sounds like the first router is doing authentication on the telnet command and it succeeds. It then allows you to connect to the console port of the other router. It appears that this other router is either not responding or you have a cable issue or something set on the console.
Make sure you are using a roll cable. These are the blue or black flat cables that used to come with routers.
Make sure you are using the default settings on the console. You can change the aux port to match the baud rate and other settings if you must but it is better to run with default.
Make sure you really should use 2065. Most 2600 routers use that but many other routers use 2001 and some change when you insert certain cards.
Hi everyone, I would like to thank you in advance for any help you can provide a newcomer like myself!
