telnet

Connect through Telnet to a server. The Telnet client and server in Dell EMC Networking support IPv4 and IPv6 connections. You can establish a Telnet session directly to the router or a connection can be initiated from the router.

NOTE: The Telnet server and client are VRF-aware. Using the vrf parameter in this command, you can make a Telnet server or client to listen to a specific VRF. This capability enables a Telent server or client to look up the correct routing table and establish a connection.
Syntax
telnet {host | ip-address | ipv6-address prefix-length | vrf vrf instance name} [/source-interface]
Parameters
host
Enter the name of a server.
ip-address
Enter the IPv4 address in dotted decimal format of the server.
ipv6-address prefix-length
Enter the IPv6 address in the x:x:x:x::x format then the prefix length in the /x format. The range is from /0 to /128.

Usage Information

The VRF configured using this command has a higher precedence than a VRF configured using the ip telnet vrf vrf-name command. If you do not use the VRF attribute in this command, then TELENT client uses the VRF configured using the ip telnet vrf vrf-name command.

The source interface configured using this command has a higher precedence than the source interface configured using the ip telnet source-interface command. If you do not configure a source interface using this command, then the TELNET client uses the source interface configured using the ip telnet source-interface command.

In case there is a mismatch between the VRF telnet source interface and the telnent VRF, then an error is reported.

Example
DellEMC# telnet vrf vrf1 10.10.10.2
