Hello All,

I am in need of commands to enable SSH on a cisco router.

Does anyone have any quick command line configs?

Thank you in advance,

The first thing is to verify that the Cisco is running code that does support SSH (requires support for crypto). For many Cisco devices you can check this by looking for k9 in the file name of the file for code for the device. If you are not sure then the easy check is to go into configuration mode and enter crypto ?

if it gives you options for crypto including crypto key then your code does support SSH.

After you have verified that the code does support SSH then these are the steps:

- make sure that the Cisco device does have a non default device host name.

- make sure that the Cisco device is configured with a domain name.

- generate the crypto RSA key.

There are other options that can be configured but these are the basic required steps.
