Cisco ASA - how to access standby unit from master unit

I have an active/passive ASA cluster. From the shell of the master unit, is it possible to SSH over to the standby unit?

use the "failover exec standby [add command here]". For example:

firewall(config)#failover exec standby show interface OUTSIDE
Interface Ethernet0/0 "OUTSIDE", is up, line protocol is up
 Hardware is i82546GB rev03, BW 1000 Mbps, DLY 10 usec

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/asa/asa96/configuration/general/asa-96-general-config/ha-failover.html#task_7751181E02E44B099EE371E112319706

Don't issue configuration commands to the standby unit; those changes are not replicated to the active unit and the two configurations will no longer be synchronized

No, you can't ssh. As mentioned in the other post, you can issue commands
