Firstly you need to set local username & password on all devices.

username XXXX password xxx

Then you'll have to enable telnet for access from remote by command:

line vty 0 4

login

if you have acs then you may set your devices to be authenticated by aaa.

Re: Remote Telnet access to Switches

Thanks. If my switch is behind a router. I have no problem accessing the router through the WAN IP configured.

Question is how do i access the switch. What IP should I telnet to and from where ?

Please help. Thanks

Re: Remote Telnet access to Switches

With the Vlan management IP. You must be having 1 management Ip on the switches by which you telnet & manage the switches.

Hope that clarifies.

pls rate all helpful posts.
