How to configure SSH on Brocade 6510 and 7840 - novice administrator

Hello,

I have a number of 7840s and 6510s that we traditionally use telnet to access.  REcently weve been told to use SSH so we can eventually block telnet port 23.

I hve found a number of documents but none seem to give me a simple guide to implment SSH.

 

All devices are at V7.4.1 or V7.4.1b.

 

I am not familair with the SSH inner workings, setting up SSH is new to me.

 

Is there a concise cook book to enable 'admin' to log in via SSH?

Hi Phil,

 

all recent FOS switch supports ssh out of the box - incoming. You can simply type

 

ssh admin@ip-address-of-your-switch

 

to ssh into the FOS switch. If you want to put in place ssh public keys on the switch, the following doc is a starting point
