The 2600 is quite more capable, that would be a DVR not a dishwasher (no joke: the TiVo DVR is a low-end PowerPC with 32 megs, see photos here: http://home.pacbell.net/arn-py/tivo/) > Joe Abley wrote: > but the ssh client session does actually complete, and I > can type commands.

No real-world production application; first, it has 16 async lines, you would expect to be able to have two different users use two of them at the same time. This is what terminal servers are for. Second, if you need to use one of the serial ports to access the router with PPP, have an access-list to restrict telnet/SSH access, log anything, you're SOL. The 2511 is a perfectly good CCIE Lab terminal server though, no need for SSH. For what I have read, lots of people here could use a little practice. There's this story about the guy flying 10,000 miles coming to SJ to take the lab (before a testing center opened in Asia) and could not get through the first line of the first lab question (which is to configure the 2611 to access all the other devices using reverse telnet) and flew back home with a brilliant 0 points. There's no point using SSH when the router's enable password is "cisco", or is there? Michel.
