First of all it has been over 10 years since I worked on a Foundry device (ServerIron switch). Can someone please tell me how to lock down the vty lines so that you can only SSH to the devices. I know how to set it up on Cisco but not on Brocade/Foundry. Also, to enable SSH on the switch, is the same or similar like Cisco? Lastly, listed below are the devices we have in our network and the sw version they are running. Will I need to upgrade???
FESX448 SW: 03.0.01cT3e3
FESX424 SW: 02.2.00Te1
FES9604 SW: 03.6.00aTc1
Thanks for your help

There are no VTY lines in a Foundry config.
You nee to disable the service itself:
To allow Telnet access to the Foundry device, enter the following command:
FastIron(config)# telnet server
To allow SNMP access to the Foundry device, enter the following command:
Web Management through HTTP
To allow web management through HTTP for the Foundry device, you enable web management as shown in the
Hope this helps

Cool. I have another problem though. I am trying to acces the devices via SSH. I generated the keys, "crypto key generate rsa", setup the domain name and created local user accounts to authenticate too. When I ssh to the devices, using putty, I get a login prompt. When I type my username and password it does not authenticate me to the local user accounts on the switch. However I can telnet to the devices and login using the local user accounts. Am I missing a step here.
