Dear friends,

Is there support for ssh into a host inside a VRF on 6500/7600 series?

If yes, can you tell me which version supports this?

Thanks a lot

Hi Gautam,

Check for the Bug Id CSCsa62544 and ssh client support would be available in 12.5T seires.

Hope to Help !!

Gautam,

Can you explain what you mean by inside a VRF?  You mean SSH from one 6500 to another using a VRF?

Re: SSH client support for VRF

Thats right. If a host is connected to vrf abc (defined on a 6500) with IP address A.B.C.D and runs ssh server , then there should  be a command like:

ssh -l -vrf ABC A.B.C.D.

But i dont see an option like -vrf on ssh.

Thanks a lot

Try this:

Switch# ssh -l > -vrf  
vrf-name ip-host

SSH to an ip host or address in the specified VRF.

Dear Reza,

Here's the output from our 7609-S  switch running 12.2(33)SRC3 Advanced IP Services:

core.01#ssh -l mzsuadmin ?
  -c    Select encryption algorithm
  -m    Select HMAC algorithm
  -o    Specify options
  -p    Connect to this port
  -v    Specify SSH Protocol Version
  WORD  IP address or hostname of a remote system

And from the 6509-E switch running 12.2(33)SXH3a Advanced IP Services, the output is:

agg.01#ssh -l mzsuadmin ?
  -c    Select encryption algorithm
  -m    Select HMAC algorithm
  -o    Specify options
  -p    Connect to this port
  -v    Specify SSH Protocol Version
  WORD  IP address or hostname of a remote system

Ganesh: The bug ID that i try to open says that it cannot be disclosed.

If you have access to the bug details, can you put it in text in this message.

Also, is 12.5 just a router platform or will be on switches as well.

Thanks a lot

Gautam
