This post shows you how to configure a Cisco router to act as a terminal or access server. Terminal/Access server makes it easy for you to be able to have console access to important devices on your network or if you have a bunch of routers and switches for your CCIE home lab.
Without further delay, here’s the configuration on how to configure your terminal/access server.
TERMSRV (config)# interface loopback0 ip address 184.108.40.206 255.255.255.255 ! interface Ethernet0 ip add 192.168.0.254 255.255.255.0 ! ip host BB1 2001 220.127.116.11 ip host BB2 2002 18.104.22.168 ip host BB3 2003 22.214.171.124 ip host R1 2004 126.96.36.199 ip host R2 2005 188.8.131.52 ip host R3 2006 184.108.40.206 ip host R5 2008 220.127.116.11 ip host R6 2009 18.104.22.168 ip host S4 2010 22.214.171.124 ip host S3 2011 126.96.36.199 ip host S2 2012 188.8.131.52 ip host S1 2013 184.108.40.206 ip host R4 2014 220.127.116.11 ! end
The commands below are optional. I had problems with my Cisco 2511 and this is the configuration that seemed to fix the issue. Unfortunately, I don’t exactly remember what it was since that was few years ago.
TERMSRV (config)# line 1 16 flush-at-activation transport input telnet autohangup ! end
I hope this has been helpful and I thank you for reading.
