PIX(config)#hostname PIXOne


PIXOne(config)#ca generate rsa key 1024

PIXOne(config)#ssh time-out 60

PIXOne(config)#ssh outside

PIXOne(config)#passwd your_secret_password


PIXOne#wr mem

The ssh outside line should be changed to be the address you want to manage the ASA from. Limit this to as few addresses as possible.

Hope that helps.

Yes. You can configure other methods though (local, radius, tacacs, etc).
