hi,
i set up a home lab for ccna ccnp.
i have a rack with plenty cisco equipment and i bought a 2509-rj router to manage the other device.
i'm having trouble configuring it since i cannot telnet to the devices connected to async ports.

here is show run:

Router#show run
Building configuration...

Current configuration:
!
version 11.3
service timestamps debug uptime
service timestamps log uptime
no service password-encryption
!
hostname Router
!
!
ip host host1 2001 192.168.0.1
!
!
!
interface Loopback0
 ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.255
!
interface Ethernet0
 ip address 192.168.1.10 255.255.255.0
!
interface Serial0
 no ip address
 no ip mroute-cache
 shutdown
 no fair-queue
!
ip default-gateway 192.168.1.1
ip classless
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1
!
!
line con 0
line 1 8
 session-timeout 20
 no exec
 exec-timeout 0 0
 transport input telnet
 transport output telnet
line aux 0
line vty 0 4
!
end


the idea was to keep the rack in a separated subnet 192.168.0.0/24, my home lan is 192.168.1.0/24.

i connected a transceiver to AUI port and gave address 192.168.1.10
i created a loopback interface 192.168.0.1/32
fissued the folowing commands.
router(conf):ip host host1 2001 192.168.0.1
router(conf):line 1 8
router(conf-line):transport input telnet

when i try from the router to telnet the connected device (a 2620xm) it says:

Router#telnet host1
Trying host1 (192.168.0.1, 2001)...
% Connection refused by remote host

Router#telnet 192.168.0.1 2001
Trying 192.168.0.1, 2001 ...
% Connection refused by remote host


and the same from a host in home lan, i can telnet te 2509 but not the devices connecte to it...

hope you can help,
paolo.

Sounds like telnet is not enabled on the other router.

Have you configured a password and setup logins on the vty interfaces on the 2620XM?

Also, have you verified there are no ACLs blocking telnet on the 2620XM?

Can you ping the 2620XM from the 2509-rj or the LAN?

hi,
sorry for slow answer but i got busy working...
yes, i tried configuring a password for they vty, and there shouldn't be an acl since i just erased startup... yeah i can ping it, i used it a lot of time for creating lab scenarios..
anyway i suppose this isn't a matter of telnet, or anyway notting regarding the 2620xm.. symply  because since it is a terminal server, i should be able to just connect and power on a new device and then configure it without a pc.. if it would require allso just one command to be issued in the connected devices, it would be useless.
any command missing in the 2059? iwas wondering how does the router estabilish a telnet connection trought a console port... shouldn't they be compleetly different protocols?
i found a command to set the lines as "terminal" may i need this?
thanks!

Console port is a serial connection, just 9600 8n1.

There is no telnet or ssh just an open connection.

If you telnet across the serial connection it is the same as over Ethernet, vty access.

hi again,
i found out that was missin the command "no exec" in the lines.. but now i can estabilish a connection, but immediatly after that it hang and the console session to the 2509 blocks.
the only way to gai acces to the router back is to telnet into it and reboot. or switch in  off and on again...
any idea why? may it be the 2509 not working properly?
thats what happens:
TS#R2500
Trying R2500 (192.168.0.1, 2002)... Open

then it blocks...
paolo.

Is there an ACL on the 2509 blocking anything outbound?

ACLs are part of your configuration

Line 1 - what does it connect to?
Line 2 - what does it connect to?

Getting a refused would state that the receiving device is not listening (ie., no exec on console).
You might also want to add transport preferred telnet.  

A "show line" and a "show line x" mght help determine the issue.  We are assuming that the cable you are using is fine, this is where a breakout box might be helpful to determine pinout and signal.

line 1 is connected to a 2620xm and line 2 to a 2500 series, should be a 2504 .

well honestly i missed this command before.. as far as i understand i see notthing strange
i don't know about the no exec command since before using it i wasn't able to see connected devices and inoticed that in sh line tab the lines  with a connected device were  reporting overruns.
i guessed was something about noise on the line...


for the cables i actually used a "factory-made" rj-45 to rj-45 cisco blue rollover for line 1 and anotherone i made by myself by cutting a classic rj45 to rs-232. is quite simple since the order of pins is simply the opposite and moreover it's a flat cable so i shouldn't have done wrong..

thanks for helping!

Ok -
The 2500rj should have an octal cable coming from it with 8 cables on it, right?
