Reverse SSH ona terminal server

We are rolling out new terminal servers (2811s) and on the new terminal servers we want to configure reverse SSH.

On the old terminal servers we only had reverse telnet configured. And we would map the port to an IP using the ip alias command Eg ip alias 2067.

These would help out with management as we could then add this IP address to our DNS server and we wouldn't have to remember what port was needed when using out-of-band management when trying to console to a device.

With reverse SSH this isnt possible as the port needs to be specified when logging on to the router.

Has anyone successfully used reverse ssh with "ip alias"?

I could use the IP host command (ip host name port-num ip), but this would mean i would have to use a cisco device as a golden source.

Re: Reverse SSH ona terminal server

The ip address you use in the reverse telnet, is not used for the ip address of the remote device.Try this cinfiguration ip host sw12a-con ,ip alias .

Re: Reverse SSH ona terminal server

CSCO10408957... how would i use the below command to reverse ssh into a box.

Would i try and reverse ssh from the same box where this command is configured?
