ssh access on multiple interfaces on soho 92 router

Unanswered Question

In my current config, I have:

ip ssh source-interface Ethernet0

Is it possible to configure ssh on both interfaces? The above command forces one to specify either ehternet0 or ehternet1, not both. Thus, with my current config, I can ssh to the soho92 from within my ipsec tunnel. However, I would also like to be able to ssh to my soho 92 from the external interface of my remote connection. I already have the ACLs setup on ethernet1 to allow this.

You can access the device on multiple interfaces with SSH (ACLs permitting).

I believe the command indicates the interface used when the Cisco device "initiates" an SSH connection.

We configure loopback interfaces as the source-interface(s) for almost all services (incl. SSH). That does not prevent us from accessing the device on any other interface (ACLs permitting).
