Do you still have console access to the device via the Cisco Cable?

Did you configure line vty. As long as line vty is configured with a command LOGIN, you will be able to telnet to the router. Also check transport input has not limited the logon to ssh only.

Line vty still requires that an interface  is configured correctly in order to access the device remotely. The author has obviously misconfigured an interface, thus preventing him from accessing the device through line vty. The existence of line vty by itself doesn't provide remote access.

Hi Guys

i managed to get on via console and once the ip address was reissued at subinterface level, connectivity was restored

I thank you for your time
