Console access of Router using modem?

Hi,

Is there any way to access router's console using modem connected to AUX port?

Thanks.

Yes - you set the terminal speed on the modem to 9600 (or whatever speed the AUX port is configured as) and plug in the modem.

On the AUX port add the command 'login' and 'password <>'

to allow you to access normal functions. You will also need to set an enable password as well.

So i can dial the modem remotely & access the router's console, right?

And there is no special config except under aux config, right?

& i have to connect convertor from RJ11 to RJ45, right?

As long as the modem auto answers and is set to pass traffic on the terminal side at the speed the AUX port is set to, then it should work just like you are plugged in directly.

Be sure to test it first before you deploy it :-)
