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 172.16.1.10
host2: 2 at 172.16.1.10
host3: 3 at 172.16.1.10
net default gateway 172.16.1.1 metric 1 hardwired
So I connect to my annex by telnetting to 172.16.1.10, 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......
