hi,


we are currently standardizing our remote access from telnet to ssh. just want to know if we would be locked out (no remote access) if we enable ssh on our routers?


line vty 0 4

transport input ssh


or can we do both at the same time?


transport input telnet ssh

You can do both until you are happy that your ssh configuration is working.

if i issue router(config-line)#no transport input telnet, would i be locked out for telnet access into the device and only direct console access is applicable? this is only a worse case scenario i'm thinking if ssh should not work.
