Shutting down the Telnet service

Shutting down the Telnet service will forcibly disconnect all Telnet sessions running on a switch.

You must be in global configuration mode to shut down the Telnet service on a switch.

The Telnet service runs by default.
To shut down the Telnet service on a switch, enter telnet server shutdown.
switch(config)# telnet server shutdown
switch(config)#
All Telnet sessions are immediately terminated, and cannot be re-established until the service is re-enabled.
switch(config)# rbridge-id 3
switch(config-rbridge-id-3)# telnet server shutdown
