Problem Accessing FWSM From Switch Console

Unanswered Question
Jul 30th, 2007


I have a 6509 with FWSM in module 4. FWSM is configured in single context mode. After I configured passwords and authentication on the FWSM, I can no longer access the module using "session slot 4 processor 1" when connecting to the 6509 switch via console. Please note that if I ssh to 6509 then I can get to FWSM successfully.

Obviously I can remove authentication config to resolve the issue for now but I need to keep them in the final configuration and cannot figure out how they would cause the above issue to find a workaround ...

My Authentication config:


enable password xxx

passwd xxx

username admin nopassword privilege 15

aaa authentication ssh console TACACS+ LOCAL

aaa authentication http console TACACS+ LOCAL

aaa-server TACACS+ protocol tacacs+

aaa-server TACACS+ (management) host x.x.x.x

timeout 5

key xxxxx

http server enable

http x.x.x.x management

ssh x.x.x.x management

telnet timeout 5

ssh timeout 5

console timeout 0


Thanks in advance for your help ...


I have this problem too.
