Unanswered Question
Feb 5th, 2008


I have WS-C2960-24TC-L Switch with Software Ver 12.2(25)SEE3 and imge C2960-LANBASE-M currently on it. I want to enable SSH connections on the switch and believe I need to import the cryto image onto the switch. Is this right and if so how do I go about this. The switch is now live yet.

Thank You


I have this problem too.

You will need a CCO account to download the image. Do you have one?

Here is the link to image, again you will need a CCO account to download.


Once you have it, post and we'll address the next steps.

Basically after you get the crypto code loaded it is as simple as the following .

Make sure box has a ip domain-name configured,if not create one.

conf t

crypto key gen rsa , hit enter

enter the key size you want to use and hit enter .

Then just add your transport input statements on your vty lines .

Verify key with the show crypto key my rsa command.
