PIX 501 FV:6.2(1) ssh/telnet username

Hi togehter,

how can I change the default ssh/telnet username "pix" to another.

The passwd change is no problem, but i cannot find any cmd to change the default username "pix" to another.

any ideas ??

I believe you can use

user "name here - no quotes" password "password here"

It will not replace the "pix" user / password, but add another user. You may also need to change the authroization to "Local"

Good Luck

I use an external autentication radius server (IAS Microsoft) to ssh logon and I have to my external account in ssh to log in

You can use internal username/password authentication - see below:

Good luck!

Hi Eugene,

that sounds fine, but does not work for ssh. :-(

ffmlog1:ksh 159 net>ssh -l pix 194.8.95.38

pix@194.8.95.38's password:

Type help or '?' for a list of available commands.

yfr-15kwe1>

yfr-15kwe1> ena

Password: *******

yfr-15kwe1# conf t

yfr-15kwe1(config)# username sthon password test

yfr-15kwe1# show username sthon

username sthon password VSkgrAjzs/g8UQqB encrypted privilege 2

and now try to connect with the new user "sthon":

ffmlog1:ksh 1683 net>ssh -l sthon 194.8.95.38

sthon@194.8.95.38's password:

Permission denied.

some more ideas ?

It works for me. See below:

[root@slack81 root]# ssh -l eenest -c des 10.1.1.1

eenest@10.1.1.1's password:

Probably there's some other problem.

In reality - the output you sent me is meaningless.

Can you send the debug output?
