Choose “Open GNS3 WebClient launcher” to start your application when using Google Chrome web browser. On Firefox web browser, select the GNS3 WebClient launcher and tick “Remember my choice for gns3+telnet links” then click on “Open link”. You won’t have to do this again the next time. GNS3 - Telnet issue. Ask Question Asked 4 years ago. Active 2 years, 4 months ago. Viewed 926 times 1. I have created the following Network in GNS3 Let me explain the SetUp: The internet cloud Cloud 1 is connected to my LAN and not loopback. R1 routers' F0/0 is getting the IP from DHCP, to which i can telnet and ping from any remote host in my. Telnet connection to GNS3 Router via VMWare Windows 7 workstation.

This article is going to shows the CCNA students to configure and enable telnet and ssh on Cisco router and switches. The Telnet is an old and non-secure application protocol for remote control services. You can configure telnet on all Cisco switches and routers with the following step by step guides. But it’s not the best way to the wide-area network. However, we just going to enable telnet and ssh to test them for CCNA Certification exams.

Add Router IOS Image in GNS3. Add a Virtual Machine in GNS3. Upgrade The GNS3 VM. L2 Switching Simulation. L3 switching Simulation. Lab 01: Connect 2 PCs. Issue the following command to configure rahmati as the password that will be used to authenticate the Telnet session: R1(config-line)#password rahmati. Just like on Windows, telnet can be accessed through Terminal, the command prompt on macOS. To open telnet, click “Go” “Utilities” 'Terminal', then run the following command (the numbers are example IP address and port): telnet domainname or ip port, e.g.telnet 443.

Enable Telnet and SSH on Cisco Router

To enable telnet on Cisco router, simply do it with “line vty” command. First of the first download the CCNA Lab to Enable Telnet and SSH on Cisco Router from Telnet and SSH Lab. The Lab is configured with DHCP server and all clients get an IP address from DHCP Server on Router.

Go to router R1 console and configure telnet with “line vty” command.

  • The “line vty” command enable the telnet and the “0″ is just let a single line or session to the router. If you need more session simultaneously, you must type “line vty 0 10“.
  • The “password” command set the “Pass123” as a password for telnet. You can set your own password.
  • The “login” command authenticate and ask you the password of telnet. If you type “no login” command, the telnet never authenticates for the password which is not a good practice in a real network environment.
  • The “logging synchronous” command stops any message output from splitting your typing.
  • The “exec-timeout” command just sets the time-out limit on the line from the default to “40″ minutes.
  • The motd-banner forces a banner message to appear when logging in.

OK, the Telnet services enabled successfully. But you must set the enable password for the router in order to control it remotely.

Testing Telnet Connectivity

Now from a client PC test the telnet connectivity and to ensure that it works fine or not yet. If it does not work, try to troubleshoot telnet errors.


Let’s test telnet from the admin PC. Type telnet and press enter, then enter the telnet password. Next type enable command and press enter, then type the router password.

Now you are remotely connected to router R1 and you can execute all router commands through a telnet command-line interface.

If you need more information about Telnet commands and options, from the config-line mode type “?“, the question mark will display all telnet commands.

That is it, the telnet services configuration on Cisco router.

2. Enable Telnet and SSH: SSH Configuration.

Secure Shell or SSH is a secure protocol and the replacement for Telnet and other insecure remote shell protocols. So for secure communication between network devices, I strongly recommend using SSH instead of Telnet.

Configure SSH on Cisco routers and switches with the below step by step guide to SSH configuration.

1. Open the router R1 console line and create domain and username.

Then “IP domain-name” command creates a domain and named

The “username Shais Password Pass123” command just create a username “Shais” with “Pass123” password.

2. If you don, just follow and generate the encryption keys for securing the ssh session.


Type “crypto key generate rsa” command and press enter when asking you “How many bits in the modulus [512]:” just type “1024″ and press enter. The system will generate 1024 bits keys to secure session lines. You can choose modules in the range of 360 to 2048.

Ssh gns3

3. Now enable SSH version 2, set timeout duration and login attempt time on the router. Remember this message if you going to use ssh version 2 “Please create RSA keys (of at least 768 bits size) to enable SSH v2.

4. Enable vty lines and configure access protocols.

The configuration is the same as telnet, just the transport input ssh commandchange the line to Secure Shell. The configuration has completed, next, you must test ssh from a client PC.

Testing SSH Connectivity

From a client PC, open the command line and type “ssh -l Shais” then press enter.

Here, I have connected successfully and the connection is secured with Secure Shell.

Hope you understand the configuration of enabling Telnet and SSH on Cisco router and switches. Now you should be able to simply enable Telnet and SSH on your routers and switches.
