Restric telnet access

I have MSFC with tons of vlans in them and I can telnet/ssh to any

vlan by typing telnet x.x.x.x. I want to be able to telnet to only

mgmt interface such as loopback0. What is the best way to achieve this?

Is it possible without the ACL?


Re: Restric telnet access

Take a look at Management Plane Protection.

You'll have to use the feature navigator to see if it's available on your particular switch(es).

Hope that helps.

Re: Restric telnet access

Thank guys for the quick help. I assume the this will work even if I have Hybrid or native code on my 6500. (Of course MSFC will be IOS)

Re: Restric telnet access

MPP will be IOS only. Currently it is available in T code for routers, but you'll need to check for switches.

Re: Restric telnet access

Not necessarily, Since CoPP is a relatively new feature it is only available on the newer IOS releases. I don't believe CatOS supports this. What version is your MSFC running?
