The embedded telnet client is OK but what about a ssh client? It could be a very useful feature for debugging remote servers or network appliances in a secure fashion.
I understand the overhead concerning the image size and CPU usage, but it seems that both the flash memory and the CPU could handle ssh client integration. Naturally, it as to be fully compatible with IPv6 in dual stack enabled environment.
I am sure your not alone in the want to securely connect to other devices from within our switches. At this time the feature is not available, and there are no plans to implement in the very near future that I am aware of. It is a feature I would like as well as an engineer, but it looks like it will not be made available for a while at this point.
