Reverse Telnet help

Trying to establish a reverse telnet session from my Cisco 2620 router's AUX port to a Cisco 2911 Console port.  Each time I try to get the connection to my loopback address I get a response saying "Connection to closed by foreign host".  I've gone through tons of knowledge articles and believe I have everything set up correctly unless I'm just missing something easy.  Using a flat Cisco roll over cable between the two connections.   

2620 Loopback IP:

2620 Aux port configuration:

line aux 0

exec-timeout 0 0

password 7 14141B180F0B

modem InOut

no activation-character

no exec

transport preferred none

transport input all

transport output all

stopbits 1

2620-rtr01#telnet 2065

Trying, 2065 ... Open [Connection to closed by foreign host]  I figure it'll just be a simple config change to get it going but I'm at a loss.  Any help is extremely appreciated!!
