    Here is the guide I read:

    http://petri.com/how-to-configure-cisco-router-as-terminal-server.htm

    When I try to telnet to a device connected to the octal cable using either of the two methods discussed (by hostname or ip) I received this error:

    TSRouter# telnet 172.16.1.1 2001
    Trying 172.16.1.1, 2001 …
    % Connection refused by remote host

    I tried setting a password on the console port or the remote router but that did not work.

    I noticed this when looking at my lines:

    TSRouter#show line

    What are noise and overruns? Are they good, bad, or indifferent? Does this mean I have a bad octal cable and thats why the connection is not working?

    -Thanks
