  5. Thanks Joe for the Tutorial. This worked for me except for al small hitch.

    After doing all that if anyone is getting the error "% Connection refused by remote host" when trying to telnet either via the console server or via putty, make sure the "Overruns" are 0/0. To do that just do "clear line [LINE NUMBER]" so for example "clear line 1" will make the overruns 0/0 on the console cable# 1, "clear line 9" will clear the console cable #9…so on a so forth.

    Other than that worked like a charm.
