Packet Tracer – Use Telnet and SSH
In this lab, you will use Packet Tracer to establish remote sessions to two routers, using Telnet and SSH. You may also install a third-party terminal emulation program and access a dedicated SSH server provided by your instructor.
- Windows computer
- Cisco Packet Tracer
- PuTTY, Tera Term, or other terminal emulation programs
- An SSH server for students to access
Part 1: Simulated Remote Access using Packet Tracer
Step 1: Telnet access to East
In this step, you will access the command line of the router East.
a. Open PC0. Navigate to the Desktop tab.
b. Select Command Prompt.
c. Enter telnet 22.214.171.124 at the prompt, where 126.96.36.199 is the IP address of the router East.
d. When prompted for the credentials, enter ITEUser for the username and ITEPassword as the password.
e. After your credentials are validated, you will be at prompt of the router East.
f. Enter exit to exit the East router.
Step 2: SSH
In this step, you will access the command line of the router West.
a. Enter ssh –l ITEUser 188.8.131.52 at the prompt, where 184.108.40.206 is the IP address of the router West and ITEUser is the username for access. Note: The syntax of the SSH could depend on the type of server.
b. When prompted for the password, enter ITEPassword.
c. After your credentials are validated, you will be at prompt of the router West.
d. Enter exit to quit the session.
Part 2: SSH using Physical Equipment (Optional)
Step 1: Prepare for SSH
a. Install a third-party terminal emulation program, such as PuTTy, as instructed by your instructor.
b. Record the IP address, user credentials and other settings as necessary for SSH access.
Step 2: Remote Access
In this step, PuTTy is used as an example.
a. Open PuTTy.
b. In the Host Name (or IP address) field, enter the IP address recorded above.
c. Verify that the connection type is SSH. Verify the port number for SSH. Change as necessary with the Other settings recorded above.
What is the default port for SSH?
