By default Telnet, when enabled, uses TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) port 23. Use this command to change the TCP port.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000

telnet {port <1-65535>}

Optional. Configures the Telnet port. This is the port used for Telnet connections.

  • <1-65535> – Sets a value from 1 - 165535. The default port is 23.
