SSH access

I have approximately 500 remote sites. They are primarily 5505's connecting to us as EzVPN clients. I have the outside interface configured for SSH, but I get a network connection error any time I try to connect to any of the sites. Below is my config, could someone tell me what I am missing to be able to SSH into these devices?

Re: SSH access


By default, the security appliance             allows both SSH version 1 and version 2 but for trouble shooting purpose configure a specific version 2 in ASA  and then share the result.

Re: SSH access


First a question: have you generated the RSA keys on the ASA which are needed to support SSH?

Second a suggestion: if you have configured the RSA keys and SSH does not work, then I suggest that you configure at least one user & password on the ASA, and then configure authentication of SSH specifying LOCAL as the authentication source.
