According to Cisco's website, using the "session" command is what they call
"accessing the MSFC from the switch CLI using a Telnet session". However,
you can access the MSFC from the console port using the "switch console"
command, which Cisco describes as "accessing the MSFC from the switch CLI
directly connected to the supervisor engine console port". See the following
link for more information (watch for wrap):

Subject: 6509 MSFC [7:71340]

I have a MSFC on a 6509 that I am firing up for the first time.  The 6509 is
running CAT-OS (Hybrid Mode).

I have defined several VLAN interfaces on the MSFC, and now must create a
specific access-list to limit only a certain source and port address to
reach each of these VLAN's.  This access-list will not allow Telnet

My question is, if I create this access list and bind it to all VLANs, will
I be able to SESSION over from the switch to the MSFC?  Does the SESSION
command actually use Telnet to get to the MSFC?  Will I need to assign a
loopback address and then allow access to the loopback address specifically
in my access-list?

I just want to make sure that I do not block all access to the MSFC.

Any clarification on this would be helpful.
