Cisco Network Assistant 5.6(3)

Unanswered Question
Jul 26th, 2011

Does anyone know if 5.6 supports SSH or SNMPv3 yet?  If not, does anyone have any clue if it ever will?

I have this problem too.

The latest release notes still indicate this is an issue for ssh:

Cisco IOS Notes

Network Assistant fails when a device is running the cryptographic software image and the vty lines have been configured with the transport input ssh and line vty 0 15 global configuration commands only use SSH.

The workaround is to use the transport input ssh telnet and line vty 0 15 global configuration commands to allow SSH and Telnet access through the vty lines. After you upgrade to Cisco IOS 12.2(25)SE or higher, you can enable http or https separately from Telnet. (CSCdz01037)

Hey Marvin,

Thanks for the reply.  Any ETA on a fix/update?  Thanks in advance.

I will look in to this for you and update the thread. I don't think we have a plan to make ssh-only work right now.

Out of curiosity, are you unable or unwilling to use cli over https?

Thanks, and thanks for using CNA!
