How to configure your Cisco router to be a terminal server

Would you like to configure multiple routers, switches, and firewalls, all at the same time, from the console? This is what you want to do when practicing and learning configurations to prepare for the CCNA, CCNP, or CCIE. In fact, I have also used this in the rack of a production network to ensure that I always have console access to all production network devices. This configuration is called “using a Cisco router as a terminal server (or termserver)”.
