Cisco Terminal Server quick start

Recently i was playing with a Cisco AS2511-RJ which is a 16 port console server to connect to the console port of other devices.

Whilst playing with it, i just wanted a quick guide to the commands to use but struggled to find one…

A good config example that i liked was here:

In a nutshell, you telnet to the device on a different port number. You then link that port number to a serial port on the rear of it.

Once you have the config in place, these commands will help

Open a session:
telnet <ip> <port>

Break from the sessions:
ctrl + shift + 6
Then press X

Show open sessions:
show session
show line

Disconnect (kill) a session:
disconnect <session number>
