RLOGIN to a CS1K (Win)

This procedure describes how to configure PuTTY (the well known Windows SSH, Telnet and Rlogin client) to connect to a CS1000 using rlogin. It only applies to pre-Release 7.5 systems.

In most cases you will want to disable the Windows Firewall, and/or "Allow ICMP echo requests" (Windows XP: Network > Local Area Connection > Advanced Settings), in order to stop the connection randomly dropping.

Download the latest version of PuTTY.

WarningUPDATE: From Rel 7.5, the preferred connection type is SSH (not Rlogin). Simply enter the CS1K IP address in the host name box and hit connect. Auto-login username & Local username remain blank. The following rlogin procedure only applies to older systems.

1Copy PuTTY to a PC connectd to the ELAN.
Double click it, and the configuration window opens:

- Enter the Call Server IP address in the Host Name box.
- Select the Protocol as Rlogin, Port is 513.
- Enter a name in Saved Sessions
- Click Save to store the session
