Re: ssh connection closed

Hi Kim,


Have you tried to SSH to the ICX swtches from outside? Can you share the config of the 3 switches?


Regarding BigIron, To configure Secure Shell on a device, do the following.


1. Generate a host DSA public and private key pair for the device.

BigIron RX(config)# crypto key generate


2. Configure DSA challenge-response authentication or Password authentication


Please let us know how you get on
