Hello!

First of all you need an IOS version that support crypto (c2950-i6k2l2q4-mz.121-22.EA12.bin for C2950 as an example), then you have to enable SSH on the switch with "crypto key generate rsa" and then on the "line vty 0 4" you have to do "transport input ssh" or "transport inpus ssh telnet" if you want ssh and telnet (I recommend this until you are sure that ssh is working without problems).

Good luck!

Cheers,

Calin

Dont forget to enable "AAA new-model" in Global Config for a text book configuration :-)
