Issues getting OOB to work on a Cisco 3750x

Hello, I'm having trouble setting up the OOB management on a Cisco 3750.  Here is the config.


interface FastEthernet0
  ip address


line con 0
 exec-timeout 45 0
 logging synchronous level 5
line vty 0 4
 exec-timeout 5 0
 transport input ssh
line vty 5 15
 exec-timeout 0 0
 transport input none

I can ping the device from different vlans in the network.  When I try to connect I get this error

Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to, timeout is 2 seconds:
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/8/17 ms

transport input ssh

Means only ssh connections will be accepted.


Means you're trying to telnet.

You will need to connect using SSH instead of telnet.  This assumes that the other SSH config requirements have been done.
