PIX(config)#hostname PIXOne

PIXOne(config)#domain-name mydomain.com

PIXOne(config)#ca generate rsa key 1024

PIXOne(config)#ssh time-out 60

PIXOne(config)#ssh 75.50.95.72 255.255.255.255 outside

PIXOne(config)#passwd your_secret_password

PIXOne(config)#exit

PIXOne#wr mem

The ssh 75.50.95.72 255.255.255.255 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.

Thanks for your swift reply, is that method just using a password and no other means of authentication

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

Step 3.

Enable SSH on an interface.

default username & password are pix/cisco
