access to pix with ssh

Dear all,

I have a 6500 switch with IOS mode "encryption feature set". I would like to ssh from the switch to the pix firewall.

What command and the option I can use on the switch?




Re: access to pix with ssh

mmm .. have you configured the PIX for ssh yet ..?

I suggest you do that and test it first.

ca generate rsa key 1024

save all


Then once you have tested that ssh access to the PIX is OK, then make sure you allowed ssh from the switch IP address and from the switch you could try using a extention on telnet on port 22 (ssh) depending on the version of IOS running on your switch you could use telnet 22

I hope it helps .. please rate if it it does !!!
