Secure Shell (SSH) Server User Authentication Settings on Sx500 Series Stackable Switches
The objective of this document is to help configure the Secure Shell (SSH) Server User Authentication Settings on Sx500 Series Stackable Switches. These settings also help if you want to add a new SSH user. It is an optional setting.
Note: Before you can add a user, an RSA or DSA key should be generatedfor the userthrough an external SSH key generations/client application.
