Connection refused ssh catalyst 6509

Unanswered Question
Jun 28th, 2007

I am having an issue with our cat6509 switch, running ios not catos. I am unable to make a ssh connection. I verified the settings look fine. I checked to make sure i didnt have any hung sessions. That looks fine also. Anyone ever have a similar problem? Not sure where to check next.

I have this problem too.

Please paste the switch configuration. If SSH is configured properly, have you allowed it on the VTY lines. Please do the following:

config t

line vty 0 4

transport input all or transport input ssh

That was already done. I am posting partials here:

This is what i'm seeing for users

car01>show users

Line User Host(s) Idle Location

* 0 con 0 admin idle 00:00:00

1 vty 0 idle 3w0d

2 vty 1 idle 3w0d

3 vty 2 idle 6w0d

4 vty 3 idle 3w0d

5 vty 4 idle 3w0d

here are some parts of the config:

ip ssh time-out 30

ip ssh authentication-retries 2

ip ssh source-interface GigabitEthernet9/48

line con 0

line vty 0 4

access-class 100 in

password 7 ***************************

transport input ssh
