I know nothing about CISCO Routers, but I'd guess that if the router is
connected to his network that he likely can 'telnet' to it with the
apropriate address and whatever port that it uses.

If he is connecting to it via serial cable or modem then my guess would
be to use 'minicom'. You can think of minicom in similar terms as

I remember when hyperterm first came with win95. It only worked with

So the decision to use 'telnet' or 'minicom' really depends on how he is
