Bought access server AS2509-RJ off eBay and async console lines don't show up

I'm trying to use an AS2509-RJ access server router to console into other Cisco devices I have.           

I did a "show line" after booting the device but did not see any async "TTY" lines with any baud rates excpet for the AUX port:

Router#sh line

   Tty Typ     Tx/Rx    A Modem  Roty AccO AccI   Uses   Noise  Overruns   Int

*    0 CTY              -    -      -    -    -      0       0     0/0       -

     1 AUX   9600/9600  -    -      -    -    -      0       0     0/0       -

     2 VTY              -    -      -    -    -      0       0     0/0       -

     3 VTY              -    -      -    -    -      0       0     0/0       -

     4 VTY              -    -      -    -    -      0       0     0/0       -

     5 VTY              -    -      -    -    -      0       0     0/0       -

     6 VTY              -    -      -    -    -      0       0     0/0       -

The router is an AS2509-RJ with 8 async ports. Here is the "show ver" output:

In other outputs of "show ver" of AS2509-RJ units on eBay, it says "X terminal line(s)" under the list of interfaces, but it is clearly not on the router that I bought off of eBay. I also did the following:

configured ip address on ethernet0 interface

did a "no shut" on the interface

I then tried to telnet to the ip address on ports 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008, but I got a "Connection refused by remote host." Am I doing something wrong here or is the unit broke?

It can be faulty indeed.

Ok. Is there a command in IOS or ROMMON mode to do a test on the router?

There are no tests. If I'm not wrong the asynch lines are on a daugtherboard, that can be broken.

Do you have the octal cables plugged in?

Having them or not does not make a difference in hardware detection and configuration.

This model only has RJ-45 connectors on the back of the unit and octal cables aren't used. I did think of this and plugged in known working RJ-45 rollover cables and tried issuing the command again, but I still had the issue.
