In one of my previous tutorials, i had used Putty Connection Manager for Console Access which helps centralizing all your consoles into a single window with easy tabbing in between different router consoles. This tutorial shows yet another way of achieving same functionality.This time, i  will setup an Access Server/Console Server/Terminal Server, whatever you name it in order to access all lab devices from a single console.

Normally, people practicing for CCIE lab find this approach useful by setting up terminal server  in their labs.

Its pretty to easy setup.Here is the topology diagram i have been using in my labs for demonstration purpose:


Enjoy tutorial!
