Hi,

You need a Async module. You can use a 2500 or 2600 router as term server.

Thanks,

Re: which router can be configured as termserver ?

In addition to the mentioned router/module combinations, each router with an AUX-port can be a single-line terminal-Server.

A basic-config can be simple as the following:

line 33 48

  no exec

  transport input telnet

  transport output none

Just replace "line 33 48" with the lines that your NM-8A provides ("show line" gives you that information).

Re: which router can be configured as termserver ?

Thanks a lot.  But I couldn't get which cable i should use connect NM-8A to console port of a router. NM-8A which looks like this.

RJ-45 cable is not working.

Re: which router can be configured as termserver ?

you need an octal-cable CAB-OCTAL-ASYNC. They are often sold on ebay.

Octal cable is looks like this.

my 8AM modem is looks like this.

How can we connect ?

Re: which router can be configured as termserver ?

That's the right cable, at least when you want to connect to the console port of a cisco router which needs an RJ-45 connection. Or do you want to connect to something else? Your Google-Link doesn't show anything.
