As Ankur stated above if the switch is running native ios mode then use the 'remote command switch' to access the supervisor engine. Instead if the switch is running hybrid mode, SP runs CatOS and MSFC runs IOS, then use 'telnet (switch_ip)' to access the supervisor card. If you don't know the supervisor IP then from the MSFC issue the command 'show cdp neighbor detail' to get the IP of the switch.

Hi Friend,

Can you brief again with your requirement as it is not very clear to me? Is you switch running is Native Mode? or it is running in Hybrid mode?

Regards,

I am a bit puzzled what would be different about telnetting to a switch running native mode or a switch running hybrid mode. Can you elaborate on what this would be?

I do not understand your question very well. When you ask about format, it seems to me that you just issue the command telnet where is one of the interfaces on the sup. Perhaps you can clarify your question?

Hi Rick,

The reason why I asked the original poster about Native mode or Hybrid mode is because his post is not very clear that he want to telnet to sup engine or want to access sup engine.

If he is running Native Mode then he is very well already telnetted on cat6k box but to access sup engine in specific he need to use "remote command switch" but if he is running Hybrid mode and he had telnetted to MSFC in specific then to access switch there is no direct way but to telnet he can telnet from MSFC.

So I was not sure he is is asking just to telnet or access to sup engine after telnet.

Regards,

Ankur

Hey guys,

My apologies for not being more specific. I want to access the sup engine once I have telnetted into the switch (6500). I had been trying to use the session 15 or 16 command but it does not like the command.
