    Configuring the Embedded Telnet Client

    The system has an embedded Telnet client that enables you to connect to remote systems. You can configure a Telnet daemon to listen in virtual routers other than the default virtual router. You must be in the context of the desired virtual router to issue the command.

    To open a Telnet connection to a remote system:

    • Issue the telnet command in Privileged Exec mode. You can specify the IP address or name of the remote host and a VRF context in which the request takes place. You can force Telnet to use the IP address of an interface that you specify as its source address.

      Depending on how the remote system accepts Telnet requests, you can specify a port number or port name through which the system will connect to the remote host. In the TCP, ports define the ends of logical connections that carry communications. In most cases, you can accept the default, port number 23, the Telnet port. For more information about port numbers and associated processes, see

      host1#telnet source-interface fastEthernet 1/0

    To create a Telnet daemon to listen in a virtual router:

    • Issue the telnet listen command in Global Configuration mode.
      host1(config)#virtual-router 3 host1:3(config)#telnet listen port 3223

      Use the no version of the command to delete the daemon.
