Re: SSH to ASA 5510 remotely

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.

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