    How many different ways can you connect to a router and switch? For
    instance you can console using a console cable, but there are other
    ways right like the AUX port how does that work?

    AUX port is used for low speed asnyc connections such as connecting
    with a modem. You can then configure your router anyway you desire.

    Connecting a router to a switch via aux port is really only usefull for
    out-of-band management ... eg. allowing you to telnet to the router via the
    switch on a different port ... telnet <switch ip> 2001.

    Actually Cisco mentions that you can use the AUX port for direct
    attachment of a terminal and dialing for the purpose of routing
    packets.
