What is vty 0 4

Meaning Cisco vty (s)

Question hardware switches and hubs


what about these "line vty's" on a Cisco Catalyst switch?

So far I have understood that "vty's" are so-called virtual sessions on the switch. For example via SSH or Telnet. Accordingly, the "line console" would then be a serial session on the switch via a null modem cable. Correctly?

But why are they divided into "vty 0 4" and "vty 5 15", for example?

You can't find out which vty to connect to, can you?

Does that mean that there will then be a total of 16 vty's because of "0 15"?
