Setup Telnet Access on Force10 Switches


I am going to use a Force10 S60 switch [FTOS 8.3.3.4] to demonstrate how to setup telnet access. To setup telnet access you first need to set an IP address on either a data port or a managment port so you can access it with telnet. Since the S60 has a management port, I’m going to use that. The commands I would enter would be:

- enable
- conf
- interface managementethernet 1/0
- ip address 10.10.15.130/24
- no shut


Now I will need to setup a default route so I can access the switch from the internet. Assuming my switch has a gateway address of 10.10.15.254/24, I would enter the following commands:

- enable
- conf
- management route 0.0.0.0/0 10.10.15.254


I next setup a user and an authentication list that will be used for telnet access. Below is an example in which I use local username authentication:

- enable
- config
- username testuser password testpassword privilege 15
- aaa authentication login localmethod local


Now, I enable telnet access on the vty lines and enable authentication using the authentication list I created in the prior step:

- enable
- config
- line vty 0 9
-login authentication localmethod


I make sure to save my configuration using “write mem”. I can now access the switch via telnet.
