5.2.4 Using Telnet
The telnet client is enabled on the ML1200. The ML1200 supports five simultaneous
sessions on a switch: four telnet sessions and one console session. This allows many users
to view, discuss, or edit changes to the ML1200. This is also useful when two remote users
want to view the switch settings. The telnet client can be disabled through the command
line interface by using the
telnet disable command with the following syntax:
Telnet can also be disabled for specific users with the
useraccess command. Refer to
section 1.5.8: User Management, for details.
Multiple telnet sessions started from the CLI interface or the command line are serviced by
the ML1200 in a round-robin fashion (that is, one session after another). If one telnet
session started from an ML1200 is downloading a file, the other windows will not be
serviced until the file transfer is completed.
The following example changes the telnet access. In this case, the enable command was
repeated without any effect to the switch.
