PIX/ASA : Using hostname authentication instead of IP for telnet and ssh

Unanswered Question

We are trying to use this command:

telnet mypchostname.company.com

instead of

telnet inside

but the command is not working. Is there some other sytax that we need?

Here is what the ? says from the asa:

ASA(config)# ssh ?

configure mode commands/options:

Hostname or A.B.C.D The IP address of the host and/or network authorized to

login to the system

X:X:X:X::X/<0-128> IPv6 address/prefix authorized to login to the system

scopy Secure Copy mode

timeout Configure ssh idle timeout

version Specify protocol version to be supported

Hello Ben,

Try this-


name mypchostname.company.com

telnet mypchostname.company.com inside

(We still need to specify the subnet mask)

Hope that helps.
