ssh configuration

How do I configure ssh access on a cat 4506 switch? I want to completely disable telnet and use ssh access instead

Provided you have the apropriate image:

crypto key generate rsa

line vty 0 4 transport input ssh

I think that you also need

username whatever-you-like password any-password line vty 0 4 login local

If you don't have it already.

You may also need to fiddle with AAA but I don't understand that very well.

I have:

no aaa new-model username xxxxx privilege 15 password 7 xxxxxx ! priv 15 not needed. line vty 0 4 login local transport input telnet ssh transport output telnet ssh

It is quite likely that your 4500 Image will not be a crypto one.

The cry key gen will tell you.

This is from a 4500. R1#c? calendar cd clear clock cns configure connect copy

No crypto here.

/Remember/ If you change the host name or domain name that you need to re-create the key otherwise you /will not/ be able to connect with ssh. If you turn off all means of access other than ssh then you will not be able to connect remotely at all.
