ASA - SSH failure

Answered Question
Jan 8th, 2009

Hello All,

another sily issue, I configure an ASA so i could access it through ssh. Everything is configured as described in the cisco user guide but surprisingly enough, it does not work...

I tried ssh v1 and 2, I zeroized the key and regenerated a new one but it still does not work. Connectivity seems to be fine as I get the ssh prompt.

Any idea?

Regards,

Thibault.

I have this problem too.

Thibault, you don't have AAA enable, try adding this commands so you will be authenticated with local database:

aaa authentication enable console LOCAL

aaa authentication serial console LOCAL

aaa authentication http console LOCAL

aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL

aaa authentication telnet console LOCAL

aaa authorization command LOCAL

aaa local authentication attempts max-fail 5

Hope this help.

Hello JC,

Thanks for your reply.

Actually the "aaa authentication enable console LOCAL" alone allowed me to login. That was the only command available out of the above list.

Thibault.
