telnet from interface

Unanswered Question
Dec 10th, 2008


I known that I cannot use telnet into the fwsm from Outside, except if you are coming via a IPSEC tunnel, but in my case I don't need to use an outside interface.

My fwsm context is only local with 4 interfaces and i want to telnet from all interface but one of interface block the flow ( logs show ipsec traffic).

My security level is 50 for all interfaces

I have no interface outside nameif.

I permit any traffic with nat exemption.

Have you any idea ?


I have this problem too.

The FWSM allows Telnet connections to the FWSM for management purposes. You cannot use Telnet to the lowest security interface unless you use Telnet inside an IPSec tunnel.

The FWSM allows a maximum of 5 concurrent Telnet connections per context, if available, with a maximum of 100 connections divided between all contexts. You can control the number of Telnet sessions allowed per context using resource classes
