Hi,

i know how to set telnet password via console, but that is not my question, my question is i wanted to set telnet passowrsd thru network without getting in to console.

Re: Telnet Password Enabling

Hi Anand,

Till the time you have set the telnet password how will you get into the box to configure it. You have to do it via console or via NMS (network management system) if you have one in your network.

Or else there is no way you can access the box without console.

Regards,

Ankur
