Cisco 2960 X FastEthernet 0 The remote system refused the connection.

I have a 2960X-24TS-L running "System image file is "flash:/c2960x-universalk9-mz.150-2.EX5/c2960x-universalk9-mz.150-2.EX5.bin"

I can SSH or Telnet to VTY ports


I can't use the FastEthernet 0 for Management with either Telnet or SSH or to TFTP config's


I get message ( The remote system refused the connection ) when I try to connect with Telnet or SSH


I have assigned an ip address to the FastEthernet 0 interface

I can ping the workstation connected to the FastEthernet 0 interface from the switch

I can ping the FastEthernet interface on the switch for the workstation

I did a no aaa new-model 

Reloaded Switch and then put aaa new-model

Still doesn't work


I have another 2690X-24TS-L running "System image file is "flash:/c2960x-universalk9-mz.150-2.EX5/c2960x-universalk9-mz.150-2.EX5.bin"

Only difference is the ip address assigned to the FastEthernet 0 and the Vlan Assigned to the GigabitEthernet interfaces

And it works for Telnet and SSH on the FastEthernet 0 interface.

Exactly how are you connected

For you to have remote access to the Management interface port, you need to be DIRECTLY CONNECTED to the Management interface port.
