Can not connect ASA through SSH

I have just configured the firewall with all the standard configuration but I can not gain SSH access. I have attached the running-config below, can someone please let me know what am I missing. I have configured the SSH exactly as stated at :

still no connectivity, do I have to generate any other certificates other than the crypto rsa key which I have already generated ?

For more info, I can not even connect the device through HTTPS even after enabling the HTTP server.




Re: Can not connect ASA through SSH

If you put the logging level at debugging and try the ssh again, is there anything in the log?

Re: Can not connect ASA through SSH


Which address are you attempting to access and where are you accessing from (what source address and through which interface)?

I believe that I see part of the problem. This line in your config controls who can HTTPS to the ASA:

http Internal

That IP address is the only address that is allowed to access the ASA internal interface and that IP is the IP of the internal interface. So there is no HTTPS or ASDM access from inside.

You are allowing access on the outside interface. But I wonder if you are attempting access from outside or inside?
