Configuring the Secure Shell (SSH) server

Secure Shell (SSH) provides secure access to the command-line interface and the Serial over LAN (text console) redirect features of the management module.

SSH users are authenticated through public key authentication or password authentication. Public key authentication is supported on only the advanced management module. SSH is enabled on the advanced management module by default, and a host key is automatically generated for SSH.

For password authentication, the password is sent after the encryption channel has been established. The login ID and password pair can be one of the 12 locally stored login IDs and passwords, or they can be stored on an LDAP server.
