Hi everyone,

                   Dunno if this is a simple one but its starting to bug me a little.


me------dialup/modem-----dialup/modem-----router/console

above is how i want to contect, as the 837 doesnt have a aux port you have to go through the console port.
I think i have the correct at commands for the modem, but what are the specifcs for the routers???

cheers guys.

"The following example shows configuration of dial backup and remote router management on the Cisco 831 and Cisco 837 routers using the console port and dialer watch."

If I am reading you corretly this should be what you want.

it's pretty easy,

en
conf t
line con 0
password xxxx
login
exec-timeout 10.0
logging synchronous

Then, you just have to make sure you got a DB25 to your router's modem going to your console port-RJ45 rollover cable.  What modem you got?  do a show line and paste the output here.

MARK, sorry the post above messed up, i dont want back up to the router, what im after is remote access into the router, rather than by a WAN or LAN IP.

To add to the other comments, you need to use Hyperterminal when dialing the router's console port from the PC for administration.  You can't use Dial Up Networking as it uses PPP and the conosle does not.

No, you have to initiate the call using Hyperterminal as the console port doesn't run PPP which is required by Dial Up Networking.

just do Hypterminal


Start
Programs
Accesssories
Communications
HyperTerminal

This is how you access it, then you name the connection.  Then you choose the modem, then setup your dialing rules/codes plus the telephone number.  Then, that's it.

Oh yeah, let me know if you have any trouble getting to HyperTerminal, configuring HyperTerminal or getting connection?
