Force Closing Telnet Sessions on AlliedWare OS

How do I force close a Telnet session on a device running AlliedWare OS?

The configuration line below will work for Routers and Layer 3 Switches running the AlliedWare OS.

To stop Telnet sessions from remaining open indefinitely after a disconnect, you will need to set the telnet time out value. Use the command syntax below:

set telnet idletimeout=x (Where x is the amount of time in seconds that you want an inactive telnet session to timeout. The default is for an idle session to never timeout).
