Allows you to Telnet from any source node to any other target node when both nodes are in the same active topology.
|slot-number||Specifies the number of a slot that is currently occupied by the intended target node.|
Blocks auto-login. You are prompted for login credentials.
Without using this option, after you are logged on to one slot (node), you can Telnet to another slot with the same user credentials.
After the target node accepts the related TCP connection, when using Telnet to connect to another node, you are not prompted for your user name or password. You are logged in to the same account (with corresponding rights) with which you accessed the originating slot.
If the failsafe account is used, user ID and password authentication takes place on the specified node. Otherwise, authentication takes place on the master node, regardless of the source and target nodes used.
Telnet must be enabled on the SummitStack for this command to function.
The following command accesses the node in slot 2:
