CNA connecting to a remote CE500 swx through ssh

Unanswered Question
Sep 15th, 2008

I guess the big question is can it be done. I'm not a guru so I'll try to explain the best I can...

We have a network of distant terminals with two hubs. For some reason it was decided not to place a tunnel between the two hubs so there isn't connectivity between the two networks for troubleshooting. In order to do this we have to go to a terminal that is on that specific network so you can imagine how big of a pain it is.

Well I have an SSH tunnel active through a server at one of the hubs. So now I have a SOCKS5 connection going through my browser so I have access to the web gui of these CE500 switches. But, in order to access the security functions of these switches I need CNA.

So the question is, can I somehow get CNA 5.4 to utilize this SSH tunnel in order to gain access to these distant end CE500 switches?

I appreciate all the help and thanks so much in advance. You could be a life saver... literally:)

I have this problem too.

The only connection options currently available are plain http or http secure (SSL).
