How do I get an outgoing connections from the aux port on a Cisco 881. I want to connect to the console port of a Cisco 1841 from the 881. The 881 doesn't have a dedicated aux port, but aparently has a "virtual aux" port on the con port.
On the 881 I do the normal:
ip add 10.0.0.1 255.255.255.0
int aux 0
transport input all
and then "telnet 10.0.0.1 2001" and get "Trying 10.0.0.1, 2001 ... Open". But then nothing. It seems the console port on the 881 might win and get in the way. Do I need to disable that somehow? I use a standard cisco console crossover cable (not ethernet) from the con/aux on the 881 to the con on the 1841. (1-8, 2-7, 3-6, 4-5, 5-4, 6-3, 7-2, 8-1) Do I need a different cable?
