Threaded View
Guys!
I  wonder if you have used one in a cisco lab?  I am using a rollover
and the no exec command under line 1 16 ...

and ip host 2501 2001 172.25.1.1 (the loopback)

and all it does is say
conncting ... open
and it hangs there! No returning or anything breks it to the router
prompt!!!

Any ideas?  Thanks

Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
try a straight-thru cable


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
Thanks Merv, I did that as a last ditch effort, I am connecting to a
2500 (6 of them) and 2x 2621's... I will try again and post the error.


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
here is wha tit looks like: The config from the 2511 and the sh line
(clear) and then the command I try and the  "...open" resonse:

AS2511rj#r1r1
Translating "r1r1"...domain server (255.255.255.255)
 (255.255.255.255)Trying r1r1 (172.21.25.11, 2001)... Open

(THEN NOTHING...nothing at all until I hit cntrl shift 6,x)
which dissconnects. What am I missing?


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
1. config is okay

2. are you sure that the console port you are trying to connect to is
configured at 9600 bps ? have you connecedt to the console port
directly using a PC?

3. have you tried using any other ports on the as2511 to test reverse
telnet besides line 1 ?

4. from what I could find, I believe the pinout for the as2511-RJ async
ports are as follows and thus would require a straight thru cable


Terminal Server Port pin outs

pin    signal
1     CTS
2     DSR
3     RXD
4     Signal Ground
5     Signal Ground
6     TXD
7     DTR
8     RTS





Cisco Console Port (DTE)

Pin    Signal    Input/Output

1    -    -
2    DTR    Output
3    TxD    Output
4    GND    -
5    GND    -
6    RxD    Input
7    DSR    Input
8    -    -


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
are you hitting the enter key after you get the open message ?


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
Yes sir, about 2-10 times....


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
this is what the 2600 Con 0 looks like:
!
!
line con 0
line aux 0
line vty 0 4
 login
!
end
-------
when I use a straight thru I get this message:

AS2511rj#clear line 1
[confirm]
 [OK]
AS2511rj#
[Resuming connection 1 to r1r1 ... ]

[Connection to r1r1 closed by foreign host]
AS2511rj#
AS2511rj#
AS2511rj#
-
I have tried one 3 of the 2500's and 2 of the 2600's also!

I feel like I am really close, so I appreciate the help!


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
Have you tried using  line 2 on the as2511 - i.e reverse telnet from
2002


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
Well its the same sresult if I use the rollover, "open"
and if I use the straight thru it looks like this:
AS2511rj#telnet 172.21.25.11 2002
Trying 172.21.25.11, 2002 ...
% Connection refused by remote host


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
Try port 8 with a straight-thru cable and ensure you clear the line
before you attempt the reverse telnet


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
Did that; cleared the line, then I tried on async 8.
same....open!

this is killing me.
And all these Con0's work with a straight thru console session and a pc
(with hyperterm, and SecureCRT) and I have tried through the 2511
console, through telnet through the console, and telnet from my desktop
through to the 2511 and then reverse telnet from those connections too!

Here's the config I use on mine and it works fine.

 logging synchronous
 transport input all
 transport output none

Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
Hello! Glad nobody has given up yet! it did not change a thing... you
have a as2511rj?  what do you have on your Con0's on the other routers?
 Any security settings or anything?

Also, can I check the health of these ports (async ports?)
I AM ABOUT TO CHANGE MY IOS!!!!

I did the research and got the latest non buggy for the 2511 series,
here is the sh ver:

Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
I saw an article on Cisoc site saying to configure lines with modem
inout ; cannot hurt at this point

line 1 16
modem inout


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
Given that you know the various router console ports are good and your
cables are good, the only thing not provend yet is whetehr the 2511
async ports are good.

You could try setting up Windows to the server port testing using the
following Cisco doc:

Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
I will make a new rollover tonight as well....


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
I will give this a try tonight and let youguys know...


Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open

The AS2511-RJ in our lab has rolled cables and the interface leads are

Re: AS 2511 RJ ...open
Bam!
The issue, Layer 1 of course!

2 rollovers from cisco (light blue) - the flat blue rollovers that I
had they must have not been made coorectly OR the cables relied on the
db9 "snap-in" connectors to make it a true rollover. I could not tell
by looking at thee nds of them if they were correct rollovers. . So I
made a plenum cat6 (all I had) rollover on my own and it worked like a
champ!! With No configs on the receiving Con0 and only "no exec" and
"preferred telnet" under lines 1 16 on the 2511. On thing is for sure
My humble advice:
Building your own lab brings you all kinds of "accidental" knowledge.
Unbelievable, painful, but good solid learning. I know now more than I
ever wanted about async's and rollovers and 2511's!
A big Thank you.
