I have an ASA5505 running ver 8.0(2). I have configured the ssh timeout, ssh host commands and did the crypto key gen. I am unable to access the device from the host I am allowing. Is there like ca save all command required? I am trying to use the default pix and telnet password. Do those still work?

For SSH you will need to enable a user and AAA on the ASA.

username auser password secret privilege 15

aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL

aaa authentication enable console LOCAL

aaa authorization command LOCAL

Hi Bro

Are you able to SSH into your Cisco ASA Firewall now? If yes, please do rate the above peer's comments k :-)

Firstly, if you're unable to access the Cisco ASA Firewall via SSH, can you PING the interface, assuming it's INSIDE, interface? If yes, then perhaps, could be your Terminal Emulation software. I use PUTTY, and I noticed if I were to use crypto key generate rsa modulus 768, this is good but not good if I choose 1024, for example.

Please do rate this comment :-)
