When I console cable in I get all the data I need in terms of changes, status, etc.
I dont see this info when Im telnet or SSH'd into the switch.

I would like to see when ports get plugged in, unplugged, etc. while in telnet session. I see it via console cable but not telnet/ssh.

So when you telnet or ssh into the switch you can enter the command:

terminal monitor

Do this at the pound prompt.  This will make that session act like the console port does.  This will get annoying..  So I turn it on when I need it i.e. troubleshooting etc..  and turn it off when I am done.  The command only lasts for the session you are in.

To turn it off issue

terminal no monitor

This is not done from the config prompt but rather the # prompt.

Hope that helps.
