cisco 3500 series enable telnet access

Whoa I went to change some settings on the main switch at home today and found that I couldn’t access it by telnet!

When I set it up I did so via the console cable and added a password just to be safe – it turns out this means you can access the switch by telnet unless you also enable a telnet password (a little over complicated maybe but it is cisco gear!).

This is the solution…http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps1831/products_configuration_example09186a0080202614.shtml

basically access the switch via console cable then

switch1>enable
Password:
switch1#config terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
switch1(config)#line vty
switch1(config)#line vty 0 4
switch1(config-line)#login
switch1(config-line)#password letmein
switch1(config-line)#^Z
switch1#
BINGO
