Re: Hostname

I found this:

% Hostname contains one or more illegal characters.

% Hostname is not a legal LAT node name, Using "CISCO_XX"

Try doing "hostname router", then performing desired command. Workaround says to restore hostname to original value.

Re: Hostname

No, this is a new config. without other hostname.

The original value is router!

Re: Hostname

Local Area Transport (LAT) protocol is the protocol used most often to connect terminals to DEC hosts.

The LAT protocol is similar to TCP/IP's Telnet protocol in that it allows a user at one site to establish a connection to a host at another site, then passes the keystrokes from one system to the other. A user can establish a LAT connection through the terminal server to a DEC host, simply by entering the host name.

It sounds like the IOS you are running, has terminal services features.

To read more about LAT, see:

Re: Hostname

I suppose what slidersv meant was provide the hostname as "routernew" then again change it to the deisred one. If you still face the same problem try using underscore "_" instead of hyphen "-".
