2600 ASYNC Issue

Hi Gang,

We have about 900 2600 Cisco Routers which we use for Out-Of-Band Management Access to numerous Devices all across the states.

Recently one of our vendor warranties has reached the end of contract and with all the Remote Testing Units on Site we have come across a slight issue which i need a little 101 refresher course on.

router# > sho line 36

Tty Typ Tx/Rx A Modem Roty AccO AccI Uses Noise Overruns

DNS resolution in show commands is enabled

Full user help is disabled

Allowed transports are pad v120 telnet rlogin. Preferred is telnet.

No output characters are padded

My question is, I used to be able to determine whether the Hardware MODEM State (ex: noCTS* DSR DTR RTS) was physical or logical config issue. This was a LONG time ago. My memory escapes me now, but can anyone break it down as per how to differentiate noCTR, CTR* CTR and etc...

Thank you kindly,
