  • NM-16A as a Terminal Server

    Am I doing something wrong????
    I have a Cisco 2611 router with a NM-16A plugged in so it can act as a terminal server. Have 2 sets of Octal cables.
    1st thing I noticed is (ports) are 0-7 and 8-15 respectively...
    2nd thing noticed is (cables) are 1-8 and 9-16 respectively...
    Dont know if that matters for anything????

    What I've done so far;
    I have already configured my loopback0 with the following;

    I am in 'global' mode and type the following;
    ip host 2620xm 2001

    Nothing works,,, meaning I cant make my connection.
    sh ip int br - shows my loopback0 is up & running
    sh hosts shows my ip - to - 2620xm name resolution...

    Clear Line isnt recognizing line 1 or any other for that matter...

    I used to use a 2511-RJ with the same configurations and it worked...
    Now the 2511 is dead,,, it stopped working and is with other routers & switches in networking heaven...

    Am I doing something wrong???

    Any help would be great
    Thanks in advance.

    CCNA in the making

    cisco usually start their port identifiers within the software at 0, so on my switch for instance, it's a 12 port Cat 3500, ports on the outside are labeled 1,2,3,4...12
    but within the ios, I reference them as fa0,fa1,fa2,...fa11

    does that help you on your track at all ?

      Try ports 2066 - 2097

      In cisco 2811 with NM-16A:
      0-7 2066-2073
      8-15 2074-2081
      16-23 2082-2089
      24-31 2090-2097

      Try telnet 2001
