Catalyst 6500 MSFC telnet access from FWSM

I am testing if it is possilble to telnet the Catalyst 6500 MSFC from the FWSM CLI command but cant seems to make it. Anyone has an idea how do do it? I want this to work for faster troubleshooting in case of failure of FWSM. Hoping for your help. Thanks

Re: Catalyst 6500 MSFC telnet access from FWSM

I don't think you can telnet from the FWSM shell to anywhere since FWSM doesn't include a telnet client, nor a ssh client.

You probably already know the reverse, getting to the FWSM cli from a MSFC-- (session slot x processor 1) where x is the slot the FWSM is installed at in the chassis.
