SSH through management interface

Unanswered Question
Feb 19th, 2008


I'm using Cisco Pix 515E, 8.0(3).

I configured remote access VPN. I allowed management-access interface - inside. Then I allowed ssh:

ssh inside

But I can't connect with SSH on pix inside interface.

I saw release notes on 8.0(3), where this issue is marked like corrected.

But for me this doesn't work.

Is there any special configuration with ssh though management interface through VPN? Or do you have the same experience?

Many thanks,


I have this problem too.

have you verified that ssh works from the local LAN?

can you ping the inside interface?

do you have the command sysopt connection permit-vpn?

if not, are you allowing the traffic via your outside acl?

Yes, I can ping inside interface even through VPN. When I make telnet 22 it opens black window. When I use putty, it freezes on black window, too, but doesn't write, that connection refused or sothing like this.

I have permitted sysopt connection permit-vpn.
