Old Annex question

Sad but true, I still have a few of these in operation as terminal servers.  In reading the documentation I could find it wasn't clear to me how to solve my issue.  I use these to manage Cisco routers.

How can I connect to a server, and then drop back to the CLI, so I can then connect to another server, and keep switching back and forth?  I thought I could just set the attn_string to say "^A" and then I could just hit that and it would work, but it doesn't seem to.  I basically want to emulate the same functionality you can get when you do ^^x on a Cisco terminal server (2509/2511/etc).

here is how its configured right now:

host1:                          1 at
host2:                          2 at
host3:                          3 at
net default gateway metric 1 hardwired

So I connect to my annex by telnetting to, then I type say host1, but I want to drop back to the CLI, any ideas how to escape to CLI once connected?

I figured that since many of you are from my same era and these were popular with ISP's of the day, someone here may know......
