Getting around with 2509/2511

I have just setup my 2509 terminal server and it works great but I wanted to know how do you guys navigate between routers?

I am currently connecting to R1 then Ctrl Shift 6 x back to 2509 then I have to clear the line on R2 that I came in on before.

There must be a slicker way of doing it than that - I can't imagine what it will be like with 8 routers.

I am currently consoled to the 2509 will telnetting make any difference?

thanks guys - its the easy stuff thats always the hardest..

Am I mad to give up my life to get this CCIE thing..?

    I usually set up an IP on the terminal server, then use a few puttys and telnet to the terminal servers ip and ports 2001, 2002, 2003 etc, to get to the other devices connected to the terminal server.

    you don't need to clear the line, it maintains an open session so if you telnet to line 1 (2001), ctrl shift 6 x out then telnet line 2 (2002) then ctrl shift 6 x out you can go back to line 1 by typing 1 and hitting enter at the term server console
    The only easy day was yesterday!
