Re: Cisco 877 dial in backup !!!

So you want the 877 to dial back to a central site (or ISP) if the ADSL link goes down?

Where is the authentication failing? I assume this is a PPP connection - right?

Please post some of your config.

no what i want to do is, be able to connect in to the 877 via the console port through a dial in modem which will be attached to the console port using the virtual aux port which i have configurd in the 877. what i am looking for is the correct settind=gs to out on the 877 which will allow incoming telnet or ssh to allow me to make config chages using the anologe modem to connect to the 877

I have done this in the past by putting a USR Sportster 33.6 modem on the console. Put the modem in Auto Answer mode.
