Hi, 
I should change Cisco 4503's ssh port today, but I couldn't change it.
I tried below command

% Unrecognized command
WEB_BackBone#1(config)#ss
WEB_BackBone#1(config)#ss?
% Unrecognized command
WEB_BackBone#1(config)#line vty 0 4
WEB_BackBone#1(config-line)#ss
WEB_BackBone#1(config-line)#ss?
% Unrecognized command
WEB_BackBone#1(config-line)#ip ?
netmask-format Change display of netmasks
tcp TCP options

WEB_BackBone#1(config-line)#ip t
WEB_BackBone#1(config-line)#ip tcp ?
input-coalesce-threshold Set the threshold that triggers packet coalescing
(20 default)


Cisco 4503 version is like below

Re: How to change Cisco 4503 ssh port

Hello dnwjdvkd,

see the following thread

https://community.cisco.com/t5/switching/how-change-ssh-default-port-on-router/td-p/2231329

 

if the command

ip ssh port 2222 rotary 1

in global config is not supported you may need an upgrade to a more advance license.

Other colleagues have reported the command as not available in C2960 with LAN base license.

You have IP Base license on C4503.

Try to type the command above to see if it is an hidden command, if the command is refused you probably need an upgrade in license level.

 

Hope to help

Giuseppe

@Giuseppe Larosa


Thanks your response.

I tried "ip ssh port " command in global config mode

but while I tried the command, it display "Unrecognized command"

then now 4503's license is ipbase level. Do i need upgrade for the command?

 You need a crypto image to enable SSH and crypto keys. the  image have 'k9' in the image file name.

Thanks your response.
I ask you about this.
Cisco 4503 is configured line vty with “transport input command”
Do you mean “image upgrade” to “K9” for changing ssh port

Re: How to change Cisco 4503 ssh port

What i mean and belive is  First to support SSH you need have K9 based image. - yes required uplift version of image to support.

 - Whilst it may be technically possible it is not advisable in terms of security : the standard port assignment range for protocols (1-1024) has an awareness purpose ; meaning that an SSH client has the right to not trust an ssh server (service) which does not use the standard ssh-port.

 - If you are looking to prevent ssh-access from unwanted sources , you may better look into acl-mechanisms to restrict managerial access from hosts under your control.
