How to telnet Router using Loopback address

Hi,

    It's an IP address on the device(in your case).  You need to reach that IP address(via routing protocol or static route etc). All configuration on vty lines are the same.

F.e

!

interface loopback 99

description  Management IP

ip add 99.99.99.99 255.255.255.255

!

How to telnet Router using Loopback address

Hello,

     As long as you can reach loopback's ip address you will still access the router via that IP address. Tacacs is a part of AAA components.  You can use local user/line to authenticate users as well. No need to use tacacs till you want to.
