default Specifies to use the default virtual router for Telnet connections. The default router is VR-Mgmt.
vr_name Specifies the name of the virtual router to use for Telnet connections.

The default is all.

Usage Guidelines

You must be logged in as administrator to configure the virtual router.

The switch accepts IPv6 connections.

If you specify all, the switch listens on all of the available virtual routers for Telnet connections.

The vr_name specifies the name of the virtual router to use for Telnet connections.

If you specify a virtual router name that does not exist, the switch displays an error message similar to the following:

 configure telnet vr vr-ttt ^ %% Invalid input detected at '^' marker. 


The following command configures the switch to listen for and receive Telnet requests on all virtual routers:

configure telnet vr all


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.0.

Support for IPv6 was added in ExtremeXOS 11.2.
