[All About Switches] Q&A: How Do I Solve the Problem that Users Cannot Log In to S Series Switches Through Telnet? Highlighted

A: You can go throughthe following steps to solve the problem.

Step 1: Check whether the number of login users reaches the upper limit.

Log in to the device through the console port and run the display users command to check whether all VTY user interfaces are in use. By default, the maximum number of VTY user interfaces is 5. You can run the display user-interface maximum-vty command to check the maximum number of login users allowed by the device.
If the number of login users reaches the upper limit, run the user-interface maximum-vty command to increase the maximum number of login users to .

 
Step 2: Check whether an ACL is configured in the VTY user interface view (Telnet IPv4 is used as an example).

Run the user-interface vty command on the Telnet server to enter the user interface view and then run the display this command to check whether an ACL is configured in the VTY user interface view. If so, record the ACL number.
Run the display acl acl-number command on the Telnet server to check whether the IP address of the Telnet client is denied in the ACL. If so, run the undo rule rule-id command in the ACL view to delete the deny rule and then run the corresponding command to modify the ACL and permit the IP address of the client.


Step 3: Check whether the access protocol is correctly configured in the VTY user interface view.

Run the user-interface vty command on the Telnet server to enter the user interface view and then run the display this command to check whether protocol inbound is set to telnet or all. By default, the system supports the protocol. If not, run the protocol inbound { telnet | all } command to allow Telnet users to connect to the device.
 
Step 4: Check whether an authentication mode is set for login users in the user interface view.

If password authentication is configured using the authentication-mode password command, you must enter the password upon login.
If AAA authentication is configured using the authentication-mode aaa command, you must run the local-user command to create a local AAA user.

First thing to be checked, whether telnet server is enabled, as it is disabled by default.

# Enable the Telnet service.
<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] telnet server enable
Info: TELNET server has been enabled.

# Disable the Telnet service.
<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] undo telnet server enable

# Enable the IPv6 Telnet service.
<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] telnet ipv6 server enable
