Home lab.

By capefear ·
I recently used a site where i could log in and use the routers/switches for studying for my certs, i.e. ccna/ccnp.I have purchased a few routers/switches and building my own home lab. Can someone tell me or point me in the direction whereby I can setup my equipment so I can log into it from anywhere onto the internet. I have a 2511 access server which is configured for reverse telnet already and I can access through the console to my other routers/switches. I have optonline dsl and a linksys wireless router.How do i connet to the internet then telnet into my equipment from lets say, work,school,or on the road?.Just like the sites that offer this service. I hope this makes sense.Oh I'm also running winxp on the desktop and win2000 pro on the laptop. thanks in advance.

You have everything in place. You may just enable connections to TCP ports, used for reverse telnet in you Linksys router. For example, enable TCP connection to port 2001-2016 to IP address of your 2511 router. Configure proper authentication on the router, and you will be able to access it from anywhere. Only thing is that you have to make sure you know your Linksys router current IP address. But this could be solved by using DynaDNS service (I believe this option is available on most Linksys routers).

Good luck,

CCNP, CCDP, CCSP, Cisco Voice, Security+, MCSE W2K, MCSE+I, etc.

Ok mshavrov if I understand you correctly, all I have to do is enable tcp on the ports of the 2511 and the ethernet address or the loopback address of the 2511 router?.Then find out the ip address and enable tcp on the linksys router.
