Enabling SSH on edge switch C2960

Hi,

I am newbie in networking, I want to enable SSH, on the my edge switches model and SW image is given below

WS-C2960-24TT-L     C2960-LANBASE-M

WS-C2960-48PST-L    C2960-LANBASE-M

WS-C2960-48TC-L      C2960-LANBASEK9-M

Kindly refer me any configuration guide of cisco and ways to enable SSH since I came to know from a person that my switch model doesnt support SSH?

Thanks.

Regards,

Farjad

The 2960 does support SSH but it depends on the IOS version you are running.

I think the K9 one above will do SSH but the other two probably won't.

You can check but typing #ip ssh ? in config mode and if you get 'Unrecognised Command' then it doesn't support it and you need to upgrade to an IOS which does.

Thanks

Hi,

you need a crypto image for SSH support(k9).

Hi,

configuring ssh is simple:

crypto key generate rsa modulus 1024

ip ssh version 2

and you're done, thenyou'll have to configure a local user and on your vty lines:

either login local or nothing if you have aaa new-model + aaa authentication login default local
