Understanding Telnet on the QFabric System

This topic describes the support for the Telnet protocol on QFabric systems.

Telnet service is available for devices running Junos OS, including QFX Series devices. However, on QFabric systems, Telnet support is limited and the following conditions apply:

  • You can telnet from a QFabric system to external devices that are connected to the QFabric system by way of the network Node group. To connect to these external devices, issue the telnet command from the QFabric default partition CLI.

  • You cannot use the Telnet protocol to connect from the QFabric system default partition CLI to individual components. To access system components, you must issue the request component login command instead.
