Configuring Management port on a ASA 5550

Answered Question
Sep 16th, 2010

Hi Everyone,

Can someone tell me how to configure the management port on a ASA 5550.  I assume that by configuring an IP on this port, you can SSH into the device.  Here is the current config:

interface Management0/0
nameif management
security-level 100
ip address 204.62.85.208 255.255.255.0
management-only

Thank you in advance.

Alfred

I have this problem too.

Hello,

To allow SSH, you have to specify the subnet/host you want to allow.  For example:

ssh 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 management (will allow all hosts on the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet to SSH into the ASA through the management interface)

Be sure you have the crypto key generated for SSH access:

crypto key generate rsa modulus 1024

Hope that helps!

Hi Allen,

Thanks for the quick response, that works!

Do you know where I can get information on how to configure an ASA 5550?  I have a PIX 525 that will be replaced with the ASA but I want to go through the details of properly configuring the ASA.

Thanks again,

Alfred
