Outbound Telnet Configuration Fields

Field Description
Allow New Sessions Controls whether new outbound Telnet sessions are allowed. Setting this value to Disable disallows any new outbound Telnet sessions from starting (although existing Telnet sessions are unaffected).
Maximum Number of Sessions The maximum number of allowed outbound Telnet sessions from the device simultaneously.
Session Timeout Outbound Telnet session inactivity timeout value, in minutes. An outbound Telnet session is closed automatically if there is no activity within the configured amount of time.

If you change any of the parameters, click Submit to apply the changes to the system. If you want the switch to retain the new values across a power cycle, you must save the configuration.
