Re: how to enable ssh on san switch

ssh is enabled by default on all current switches.

but it depends on the switch model if ssh can be used.

Older models didn´t support ssh.

Question is which model switch are you using?

Re: how to enable ssh on san switch

please check the Brocade Admin Guide. You will find a detail description how to create SSL certificates and how to use SSH public key authentication.

Brocade does not include any certificates on newer FOS code version.

I hope this helps,

Andreas

It should be enabled.

I guess you tried with no luck?

Look at the ipfilter rules, perhaps ssh is blocked and or is an SSL certificate is available.

And 5.0.5 ?? Consider upgrading to a higher level if possible.

Re: how to enable ssh on san switch

The Silkworm 12000 latest level is nearly reached. Latest level is 5.0.5f

IPfilter are not within this code.

The question is if the thread owner is intrested in installing his own certificates to sercure the infrastructure.
