Starting the Telnet Client
Ensure that the IP parameters described in Configuring Switch IP Parameters are set up and then start an outgoing Telnet session.
Telnet is enabled and uses VR-Mgmt by default.
Maximize the Telnet screen so that it correctly displays screens that automatically update.
- Use Telnet to establish a connection to the switch.
Specify the IP address or host name of the device that
you want to connect to.
Check the user manual supplied with the Telnet facility if you are unsure of how to do this.After the connection is established, you see the switch prompt and you can log in. The same is true if you use the switch to connect to another host. From the CLI, you must specify the IP address or host name of the device that you want to connect to.
- If the host is accessible and you are allowed access, you may log in.
