SSH from Cisco Works

How do you config SSH to operate from LMS 3.1?

Re: SSH from Cisco Works

No, not at all. SSH from the Topology Map is client-sided. The Java applet uses the client's local SSH program to connect to the device. In order to use SSH from the Topology Map, you must first be running Campus Manager 5.1.1. Then, create a campus.properties in your home directory on your client. The file should contain one line. For example, to specify PuTTY as an SSH client:

CMSSH=C:\\putty\\putty.exe

In order for RME to use SSH to fetch configs, you must make sure SSH is configured in the transport settings under RME > Admin > Config Mgmt > Transport Settings.

Re: SSH from Cisco Works

SSH how? Are you referring to SSH used to collect configurations from devices, or do you want to use SSH from the Campus Topology Map?

Re: SSH from Cisco Works

both ways when I try to ssh from Campus topology it fails. So I am assuming that using it to collect configs would also fail.
