**Help** Setting up an access server

Would I need a 2511 or a 2509 router, to set up an access server for my CCNA lab? Or could I use any other model?

    You could use a 2600 or 3600 with a NM-16A installed along with a couple of octal cables.

    I would recommend the 2509-RJ or 2511-RJ and then make custom length rollover cables.

    Thanks DPG, I was assuming that you could only use a 2511 or a 2509, to achieve this.

    Nm16 or nm32 in 2600, 3600 or 3725 or 3745
    Also get other brands of serial servers- lantronix is one that comes to mind
    Goals CCNA by dec 2013, CCNP by end of 2014

    Thanks for this link DPG, would I need to still get the octocable for this?

    You would use rollover cables for this just as you would with a 2509-RJ or 2511-RJ.
    The cables are easy to make. Just use 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 to 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1.

    Actually DPG, are there any other ones I could use, with the link you sent over, the ebay seller does not ship overseas, this is a problem because I am based in the London.
