  • How to telnet router unknown ip address

    I am trying to reconfigure a network. This network has ISA server firewall connected to a sisco router 800 via the external NIC. I believe that there is misconfiguration in the network. The IP address of the external network card is & default gateway is I can ping from the isa server machine to, which is the default gateway but I can't do telnet. I am assuming that the is the IP address of the router. Is there any way to find the ip addresses of the router?
    Thanks in advanced

    It is not necessarily that telnet port is enabled on the router. i would suggest you to try to open the command prompt and try to connect SSH ports on the router
    telnet 22
    if it responds, download the putty.exe and use it to connect to 22 port.

      You'll need a serial cable and connect directly to the device. Cisco devices usually come with a rollover serial cable that is blue and has a DB9 female on one end and an RJ45 connector on the other end. You'll plug that into the port labeled Console on the Cisco.
