Telnet by default disabled in NX-OS devices

Yasir Irfan Yasir Irfan Profile: Yasir Irfan


As I am working with Nexus 7000, Nexus 5000 and 2000 Series Switches, I discovered by default  Telnet Server is disabled in a NX-OS devices such as Nexus 7000, Nexus 5000 and 2000 Series Switches.

We all know Telnet protocol enables TCP/IP connections to a host. Telnet allows a user at one site to establish a TCP connection to a login server at another site and then passes the keystrokes from one device to the other. Telnet can accept either an IP address or a domain name as the remote device address.

I will show you how to enable the Telnet Server in NX-OS devices


VDC-Admin(config)# feature telnet

VDC-Admin(config)# show telnet server

telnet service enabled
