Re: SSH via VPN connection-ASA5505

to enable via internet please follow the link

hostname(config)# crypto key generate rsa modulus 1024
hostname(config)# write mem
hostname(config)# ssh   outside
hostname(config)# ssh inside
hostname(config)# ssh timeout 30
if you have existing access-list permit this public to your outside else make a new access-list

hostname(config)# access-list out-to-in extended permit ip    
hostname(config)# access-group out-to-in interface outside

hostname(config)# aaa authentication {telnet | ssh | http | serial} console {LOCAL | 
server_group [LOCAL]}
hostname(config)# username cisco password cisco

hope this helps
