Hi Karthick

You are currently running IP BASE Feature Set ios on your router you need to upgrade the same to Advanced Security Services or SP Services Feature set to have SSH support in your router..

You *probably* need to generate the keys - try

crypto key generate rsa

It will ask how long a key, use at least 1024 for most ssh clients.

When you're done it will say "ssh 1.99 enabled" or something.



Oops! Just noticed your sh ver - I don't think IPBASE doe it, you need IP with crypto.
