Problem connecting to SSG320M Console via reverse telnet from cisco router



  • I am having a problem using reverse telnet from a cisco 2921 router to the console of a SSG 320M.  This is working in a very hit or miss fashion and requires and when it does work, i have to bang on the <enter>key until i eventually get the login prompt from the SSG.  I am using a cisco rolled cable from the AUX port of the router to the CONSOLE port of the SSG.

    The AUX port config:

    line aux 0
    exec-timeout 5 0
    modem InOut
    transport input all

    Here is what i get in my reverse telnet session:

    User Access Verification

    Username: cpillitteri
    Password:

    Login failed

    login: % Password:
    password:

    Login failed

    login: % Password:  time
    password:

    Login failed

    login:
    login: % Authentica
    password:

    Sometimes the session eventually settles at the login: prompt and i can connect to the SSG console, and sometimes i give up.  I have duplicated this behaviour with 2 rolled cables, 2 routers and 3 SSGs.  Any ideas as to what is causing this problem?  Thanks.</enter>
