    did you get the octal cable with it? Did you get it working?

    I have the 2511 with 16 async ports...It is really helpful. As long as I have access to the internet, I can get to my rack. I ssh into a box running Linux..(actually it is Red Hat running in VMware)..from there I hit the 2511 to jump off to any router or switch in my rack. Now I just need to work in my new Netscreen 5gt.

    You will like that router...it will make life much easier. icon_wink.gif

    yep, got the cable and its connected up. here is a cut of the config.

    interface Async1
    no ip address
    encapsulation ppp
    autodetect encapsulation ppp
    async default routing
    async dynamic address
    peer default ip address pool local
    !
    interface Async2
    ip unnumbered Ethernet0
    encapsulation ppp
    async default routing
    async dynamic address
    peer default ip address pool local
    !
    interface Async3
    ip unnumbered Ethernet0
    encapsulation ppp
    async default routing
    async dynamic address
    peer default ip address pool local
    !
    interface Async4
    ip unnumbered Ethernet0
    encapsulation ppp
    async default routing
    async dynamic address
    peer default ip address pool local

    line 1 8
    modem autoconfigure discovery
    transport input all
    stopbits 1

    most of this i found from website but the other AS i have seen usually has the menu of what device to connect to.. can someone help with this

    i also use w2k term server but had to convert my rack to a more mobile solution. i may share my lab after getting the rest of these ccnp tests done

    currently i have
    3- 2900xl
    2- 2501
    1- 2509
    1 2600
    1- 4700
    1- 3640

    Here's a link that helped Wildfire set up his lab online lab.

    He also posted a config from his terminal server:

    if you get stuck give me a shout, remeber your establishing reverse telnet connections, so you dont need to configure each async interface.
    The Autocommand menu is just for ease of use

    Exactly...


    Here is an example of the first async line connected to my first router. (R1)

    ip host r1 2001 1.1.1.1
    ip host r2 2002 1.1.1.1


    those are the configurations for the first two lines....the address 1.1.1.1 is a loopback that I have set on the terminal server.

    do you have a device to turn your rack on and off?

    I found that my electricity bill was a little too high to have it on 247 so I need something to power it on and off via a CLI or web interface.

    this is what i was looking at but i was trying to figure out if any addresses had to be setup on the devices i was trying to connect to to make this work?

    i got the menu built so thats fimiliar to me..

    thx for all the input guys

    on my 2511 i actually dialed into myself (when I still had 2 phone lines)
    and used my cable modem connection to be my own isp.
