Hi there,

The syntax for the command you are trying to use is as follows;


So for example, you have named your Management0/0 interface 'management' so the correct syntax you should use is

telnet management

You currently have it assigned to an interface named 'telnet'.

Sorry, a typing mistake.

Currently, I have set "telnet management".

When I telnet the ASA, a black prompt open but no words appear

Have you configured an IP address for the management interface? This needs to be part of a subnet and cannot be a /32.
