M4100: scheduled config save via encrypted connection (needs telnet up to now..)
we would like to use NMS300 to save the config of our 40 Netgear Switches (M4100 series, different models) automatically every night, but this requires telnet to be enabled on all switches (confirmed by Netgear Expert Bruce_G: https://community.netgear.com/t5/Managed-Switches/NMS300-config-backup-with-telnet-disabled/m-p/1161...)
I think that transmitting a password for administrative access in cleartext over the network isn't best practice, especially for a product which claims to be enterprise ready.
Would you please implement an option for a scheduled config saving and other mass actions like firmware update for all switches via an encrypted conection? It should be possible to disable telnet on the switches without disabling any funcionality (apart from logging in via telnet of course..) ;-)
Thanks in advance!
