Im fooling around around on my 3550'er and is experimenting with ssh.
Transport input ssh -and "login local" (and then configure username and
pass)  i get that, but i simply do not get the point of the configured "ip
domain name" and the crypto key? What is the use of this? I am connecting
from my terminal program, stating only my username and pass, not mentioning
anything to the ssh-enabled switch about any key or domain name..

Whats the use (of the domain name and cryptokey)?

It has to do with encryption using public/private keys, a domain name is a
requirement in the process of generating those keys.
