I have PIX 515E ver 7.2. I have generated a key for ssh access with a command

crypto key generate rsa modulus 1024

and I saved it like

wr mem

then I allowed my workstation Ip for ssh access.

it worked fine, but after sometime the generated keys disappear and I should generate the key again to get access. Can anybody help me to retain the keys anytime?

' write mem ' command will not save the RSA key in PIX . For that you need to use " ca save all" command .
