Can someone tell me why I can't access my 6509 by telnet or console?

It's saying "Access not permitted. Closing connection." Even if I have the username and password for the switch.

make sure on the TACACS server 6509 has been configured as a member, bcoz some times what happens is, if the TACACS commands are issued in the switches, but didn't make 6509 as a member in TACACS, u will face such kind of probz.

It's possible that a timeout value is not specified for Telnet or the console.

I used to access it before. How is that possible. But anyways, thanks for the reply.

So, password recovery won't work also?
