I have a Cisco881-k9 model router and the problem i am facing is with the number of vty lines it just shows 5 vty lines(i.e 0 to 4) to be configured .
When i try and configure the line vty 5 it says invalid input . Is it a Hardware Limitation for this model or the change of ios image would solve the purpose.
Please find the show version for the router as below

Could you please help me on this ..?
Thanks in advance
There is a requirement in which we need more then 5 vty lines. Three for the internal access and three for the Cari access for the client.
This is a software limitation decided by Cisco and thatt cannot be overriden by the user.
Thanks for the nice rating and good luck!
We need more vty lines due to a requirement to give the client access to the router on 3 ports through the rotary command on those lines.
and we need to have 3 vty lines reserved for our internal access as per the design guidelines.
so we require 6 vty lines
To be honest with you, 6 users accessing the router simultaneously, seems exaggerated for such a small branch router.
You can try to talk to Cisco, but usually not much comes out of similar feature requests.
