Configs are fine:

TERM_SERV#r1
Trying r1 (10.10.10.10, 2001)... Open

This states that you are connected, please ensure the the correct cable is being used for the port. Also note, the the octal cable is already rolled internally, so you should be able to plug directly into the console of the 2600 or 2950.

thanks Billy,

 I have cable labeled "1" connected to my 2600 console port. The curious thing is that when I reload the 2600, I can see the boot process through the term term server 2511, once 2600 loads and gets to the prompt It won't respond to any keystrokes and it hangs. The same would be the case for the cisco 2950.

I would maybe trying different client (putty)? Have you tried a different port other than 1? Maybe try port10. Other than that, I am not sure what else you can try. Odd that you can see data, but not respond (This typically indicates hardware or cable issues.

What could be the issue here, term server? I am able to console to my 2600 ... I tried putty, teraterm and secureCRT. They all give me the same results. I tried a PC with windows 7 x64 and windows 7 x86. I am using a USB to a serial adapter, I don't think that is the issue tho... I run out of ideas and what elses.. :-)

telnet from the terminal server should work; I would try and configure an IP address on the ethernet interface of the 2511, connect the 2511 to your network and try connecting to the device via a telnet session from your host. Only thing I can think of is that you have a bad terminal server; your configs look just fine and should work; however, you can try and break out the lines:

This is a config from one of my tsers:

line 1
 session-timeout 20
 location Lab1
 no exec
 transport input telnet
line 2
 session-timeout 20
 location Lab1
 no exec
 transport input telnet
line 3
 session-timeout 20
 location Lab1
 no exec
 transport input telnet
line 4
 session-timeout 20
 location Lab1
 no exec
 transport input telnet
line 5
 session-timeout 20
 location Lab1
 no exec
 transport input telnet
line 6
 session-timeout 20
 location Lab1
 no exec
 transport input telnet
line 7
 session-timeout 20
 location Lab1
 no exec
 transport input telnet
line 8
 session-timeout 20
 location Lab1
 no exec
 transport input telnet
line 9
 session-timeout 20
 location Lab1
 no exec
 transport input telnet

do you think that IOS versions between term server and router are not compatible. I run 12.0 on term server and 12.4(25c) on 2600?

Not all, the telnet client you are using on the tserv is a standard telnet client, if you are able to view the boto process on the 2600, I imagine you should be able to send commands from the same client. You could be running into a bug on the tserv if you are running 12.0, I think we are running 12.3, so you could check for bugs on Cisco's Bug toolkit if you have a login.

Thank you for your help Billy. At this point I have not way to check for bugs on Cisco's Bug toolkit. I don't have a login.

I appreciate the time you took to help me on this :-)
