Cannot SSH into PIX

Answered Question

I would like to be able to use an SSH client to connect to my PIX firewall over the Internet. I can do this to my 506 PIX but not on my 515, with debug SSH on I keep seeing "invalid userid michael" even though I have put the command "user michael password michael privilege 15" into the configuration. What am I doing wrong?

I have this problem too.

Have you created a rsa key ?

#Generate a key:

ca generate rsa key 1024

show ca mypubkey rsa

#Save ssh key:

ca save all

#Allow incomming ssh connections:

ssh ip_address [netmask] [interface_name]

aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL

YOU ARE MISSING:

aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL

Otherwise, use pix as username and your telnet password to access your unit!
