So I'm new at using a mac laptop when configuring a Cisco switch. The command used:
ssh switch.work.com - l username
I'm then prompted for password but it's not accepting my credentials. I've tested this using putty on my Windows machine and I know they work. Is there an alternative program to Putty, preferably freeware? Or am I doing something wrong. Please know I'm new to macs, so bare with me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
maybe you could try
Sure that your Putty is using SSH?
which version von SSH are you using? Either Putty and MAC.
did you try:
debug ip ssh
Maybe this can solve your problem
So I'm running ssh 2.0 and also noticed when I logged in using putty I was prompted to allow the rsa fingerprint. Does the Mac not ask for this?
what version of mac OS are you on? not all versions come with a built in ssh that negotiates version very well.
you can force a particular ssh version from the mac using
ssh -1 username@hostname
ssh -2 username@hostname
Can you paste your config? Starting
line vty 0 ...
