I try to use ssh remote connect to a 2950 Switch (IOS:c2950-i6k2l2q4-mz.121-14.EA1a.bin)

Configuration Preperation for SSH:

(config) hostname hostname

(config) ip domain-name domainname

(config) crypto key generate rsa 1024

(config) ip ssh authentication-retries 2

(config) ip ssh time-out 60

(config-line) transport input telnet ssh

After I reload the Switch, I can not use ssh anymore. I check the Rsa key, it's not there. If I generate the RSA Key again (crypto key generate rsa 1024) it works?

How can I save this RSA-Key after a reload?

Thanks for any reply.

I had the same problem on the PIX, turns out you need to save the RSA key seperately. A wr net won't save the key - on a PIX anyway.

The PIX command is CA SAVE ALL
