I would like to use a host name associated with the enabling of SSH on the outside interface of an ASA5505. The command syntax makes you think it is possible:
xxxxxx-fw1(config)# ssh ?
configure mode commands/options:
Hostname or A.B.C.D The IP address of the host and/or network authorized to
login to the system
The firewall can both resolve and ping the name that I want to use, but when I enter the 'ssh <chosen host name>', I get an error message. Is there some other command needed, or am I missing something here?
Thanks for the reply. I had thought of that approach, but my intent is to provide support to a 5505 via my home broadband connection which can periodically change IP address. I have dynamic dns set up here at home, so I thought that the 'ssh hostname' would work to support that scenario.
We have configured the outside and inside Interface with official ipv6 adresses, set a default route on outside Interface to our router, we also have definied a rule , which also gets hits, to permit tcp from inside Interface to any6.
In Syslog I also se...
