Configuring Dialin using a modem on router aux port

Configuring Dialin using a modem on router aux port

I have a cisco 1941 ISR router and I am trying to configure a router to allow a modem for “Offband or Out of band” access.

Below is the configuration on Aux port on Line (n):

Line aux 0
Login local
Modem InOut
Transport input all
Speed 115200
Flowcontrol hardware

I have US Robotics 56k Faxmodem which is connected to aux port of router and I am using USB dialup modem with my laptop to dailin to the router which is connected to a US Robotics Faxmodem. Then I have accessed my USB dialup modem throught HyperTerminal and I can issue all “at” commands and to dialin to the modem I have used the following command

atdt914011111111 (atdt followed by country code, area code and landline number)

Once I issue the above command it give me message “Connected” and after this I just get a flashing cursor. I cannot do anything nor will it display a username login prompt.

Is there something I am missing? Also let me know if there is any other solution for Offband management for cisco routers.
