In RME I have deactivated telnet for any transport protocol. RME should only use ssh. But any time it tries to get in contact with a device it goes as follows:
Example for config editor:
1: ssh, but ends immediatelly after "Server Protocol: SSH-1.5-Cisco-1.25" from device
2: 30 telnet tries (all blocked by our firewall)
3: ssh (changes the config and ends ok)
4: ssh (ends like 1:)
5: 30 telnet tries (blocked by FW)
6: ssh again (gets the changed config)
Is there any way to avoid these uselesss telnet tries? Every collection of the configuration of our ~500 devices leads to +27000 useless telnet attempts!
Thank you for any info about that.
What version of RME do you have? Most telnet packets should be dropped in RME 4.0.5, but there is at least one known instance where telnet may be attempted even on single-homed machines. On multi-homed machines, telnet will always be tried (followed by SSH) to try and obtain the local server address to use when communicating with the device. This cannot be changed.
