Is it possible to have SSH on the device centre window, when accessing devices, or is the fuctionality on intergrated with LMS 2.5. Am only able to access devices on Telnet, for devices on SSH i have to use another application to log into them.

If you right-click on a device on the Topology Map, or in the Topology device list, one of the options will be SSH. It requires a bit of client-side configuration. See http://server/help/CMcore/CmHelp/Topo_ConnectSecDeviceClient.html on your server for details.

Device Center cannot support SSH in its current form. The problem is that most browsers do not support an ssh:// protocol handler like they do with telnet://. Campus Manager can launch SSH since it uses client-sided Java, and has more dynamic control over what is launched and with what arguments.
