I was trying to configure a fwsm on catalyst 6500 running native IOS. FWSM running latest 3.2.1 code. I remembered that I have access-group in PermitAll outside and access-group out PermitAll outside applied. Also ssh is permitted from my workstation. Now I can ping the management IP, but not able to ssh into it, ever worse, console in is also denied. Please give some suggestions.

test#session slot 2 processor 1

The default escape character is Ctrl-^, then x.

You can also type 'exit' at the remote prompt to end the session

Trying ...

% Connection refused by remote host

It turns out that only one console connection is permitted. I had another console connection.

Sorry. My console connection refused again. So wired, I can ssh in the admin context, but not able to session slot 2 processor 1. Yes, the mod is up.

Fixed. I did not save the config. Rebooted the module. reconfigured the admin context. Everything is now working.
