Intermittent Telnet to 2950

Unanswered Question

I have a 2950 switch which is behind a Cisco PIX (7.0).

While trying to telnet to 2950 the connection is intermittent. Sometimes telnet works and sometimes not(no login prompt). Below is the capture on PIX.

10.194.1.106 is management station and 2950 mgmt. interface is 10.194.3.30. Pix outside interface and switch mgmt. are in same subnet.

Thank you.

I have this problem too.

HI,

Can you get sh interface vlan xxx for your management interface.

look in it if there are throttles. 2950 do not have very powerfull cpu and can be exposed to low telent connectivity is the cpu is busy processing other packet.

this is often the case with multicast, if you do not need/run multicast you can try disable ip igmp snooping on 2950 and see if it helps.

Cheers,

Roland
