How to telnet to an edge switch?

We have a 6506 which have dot1q trunk links to 2950 edge switches....

my problem is that i need to be able to remotely access these 2950 switches using telnet.

Is it just a case of assigning each switch an ip address to vlan1 and also assigning an ip address to vlan1 on the 6506?

any help would be great

Cheers

I think you have pretty well described what you need to do. You assign an IP address to each 2950 for management purposes (all management addresses in the same subnet). By default that address is associated with VLAN 1. You also need to configure VLAN 1 on the 6506 with an IP address in the subnet that you are using on the 2950s. That way the 6506 can get to all the 2950s. You also need to provide appropriate routing so that devices in other parts of the network have routes to the subnet and the 6506 has routes to the other subnets in the network. You should then be able to telnet to any of the switches.
