I need to stop telnet traffic and use SSH to my 2960s.

I see a global IP SSH version command

other then that it should be setting an IP Domiain Name, Crypto Key generate and setting the input on the VTY.

Am I forgetting anything?

Thanks,

Andy

Sounds about right except that you need to either


1) Create a username/password on the switch for ssh access


or


2) use an ACS server to authenticate the user.


You cannot use the line password for ssh.


Have a look at this link for further reference.

That should pretty much cover everything you need to do.
