Perform these steps to configure Telnet access:.

  1. Issue the telnet source_IP_address mask source_interface command for each address or subnet to identify the IP addresses from which the ASA accepts connections.

    If there is only one interface, configure Telnet to access that interface. Ensure that the interface has a security level of 100.
  2. Issue the telnet timeout minutes command to set the duration for which a Telnet session can be idle before the ASA disconnects the session. This step is optional.

For information on how to configure Telnet and Secure Shell (SSH) access, and how to configure the ASA from the Web interface, refer to Managing System Access.
