Does IDS or IPS support SSH version 2?

My IDS (version 4.1(5)) is running SSH at version 1.5. Does anybody know whether new IPS support SSH version 2? If it does, which version?

Thank you.

Re: Does IDS or IPS support SSH version 2?

Yes, IDS DOES support version 2. Here is how

you do it:

- conf t

- user mcmhk password 4321cisco privilege service

- exit

- logout of the IDS. Log back in with the

"mcmhk" account. Now you are in bash shell

- Once you login back in, issue the command

"su -" and hit Enter

- type in the "admin" password

- Now you are in the root linux

- Modify the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file. It

uses the standard redhat linux sshd standard

config. Add ssh version 2 to it.

- save the file

- perform "service sshd restart"

Now you can ssh in with version 2. Whether

this is supported by Cisco TAC is another

matter.
