Short Haul Modem Console Port Compatibility

The console port on the 2950's does not support DSR/DCD and DTR.

That being the case, what is the best brand/model of short haul modem that gets around this problem and can be used between a switch and a laptop running hyperterm separated by several floors ?

The console port does not support RS232 modem control (DSR/Data Carrier Detect [DCD], data terminal ready [DTR]). Therefore, when the EXEC session terminates (logout), the modem connection does not drop automatically; the user needs to manually disconnect the session. If you run Cisco IOS Software, use the exec-timeout minutes [seconds] command. This command terminates an EXEC session after a period of idle time that you have configured.
