Configuring ssh session on the management port.

Hello,

I need to know how to configure my B32 switch to accept only ssh login sessions on the management port.

Re: Configuring ssh session on the management port.

You'll need to configure the ipfilter policies to block all but ssh.

Please be aware that making a error may result in a unmanagable switch, for which you need to recover using an serial connection

sure is >> fos admin guide

http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/product_manuals/B_SAN/FOS_AdminGd_v710.pdf

page 217 onwards.

table 37 shows well know ports which you can close.

Again if you make an error you might end up going to the DC with a serial cable to undo you mistake.

Word of advise test the serial connection first before trying it.or better yet be in the DC when implementing your first ip filter policy
