i setup a reverse telnet session from my 2509, to my 2501. I now cannot go back into my 2509. I have tried CTRL SHIFT 6 and X and it does nothing. When I do "show sessions" it says there are no sessions. Yet I am reverse telnetted into a router???


this is what I did on the 2509:
 
int loopback 99
ip address 1.1.1.1 255.255.255.255
 
ip host 2500router 2001 1.1.1.1
line 1 8
 session-timeout 30
 no exec
 exec-timeout 0 0
 transport input telnet

you're right, i wasn't doing the key sequence correctly. One strange thing happened. I connected a back to back cable to some of my 2500s and now I cannot reverse telnet into them. It says connection refused. Should there be a password on these router's line vty 0 4 lines or no?

What's a "back to back" cable? Connected from where to where?
