Using SSH and the Telnet client

Starting in FortiSwitchOS 6.2.0, you can use both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses with SSH and Telnet. If the IPv6 address is a link-local address, you must specify an output interface using %. For example:

execute ssh admin@fe80::926c:acff:fe7b:e059%vlan20 // vlan20 is the output interface.

execute ssh admin@172.20.120.122

execute ssh 1002::21

execute ssh 12.345.6.78

execute telnet fe80::926c:acff:fe7b:e059%vlan20 // vlan20 is the output interface.

execute telnet 1002::21

execute telnet 12.345.6.78
