ssh key generation

Answered Question
Mar 8th, 2010

I am using a PIX 506e.  I already have some ssh addresses, but I need to add a new ssh address.  Do I need to generate a new key or does it use the existing key?  Also, if there is already a key genereated does it need cleared and a new one generated when new ssh addresses are added?

I have this problem too.

If you are simply adding more IP addresses that are allowed to connect to the pix using ssh then you do not generate a new key. The existing ssh key will be used.
