Hi,

are you using telenet to access this switch using public?

from the configuration itself it is clear that you coonfigured telnet password for line vty 0 4.

line vty 0 4

exec-timeout 0 0

password 111.

But not configured for

line vty 5 15

login  

From the show user it is clear that all the 5 terminals are occupied

    Line       User       Host(s)              Idle       Location

   1 vty 0                idle                    2d14h xxx.153.43.139

   2 vty 1                idle                 23:36:10 1xxxx8.79.2

   3 vty 2                idle                    1d22h xxx.79.2

   4 vty 3                idle                    1d21h xxxx.79.2

   *5 vty 4                idle                 22:47:25 xxxx.79.2

lint vty 0 4 --> means five vty line.

for line vty 5 15 u didnt configured any password.

you can terminate the above conenctions....... by commands

Hello Ahmed,

It should say clear line vty, not no line vty - actually, the second one is dangerous as it may deconfigure your VTYs, disabling the possibility to connect remotely altogether.

The clear line vty is used in privileged EXEC mode, outside of the global config.

Best regards,

Peter

thanks very much all> i ve solved the problem now.

but now i want to know , why there were a useres that actually are not exist !!!! ???????

Re: need help in switch 2960 telnet users!

Hi Ahmed,

Try using the "clear line vty x" command from privileged exec to kick out those idle users.

Switch#clear line vty 0

Your Telnet users stayed with their remote session due to the "exec-timeout 0 0" command. Try to tweak this line to force logout idle session after X minutes.

I would recommend reserving one vty line for using an ACL to prevent yourself from being locked out.

access-list 1 permit

line vty 5

access-class 1 in
