ASA SSLVPN issue: ssh to internal core switch says "no matching cipher found"

Hi Guys,

I am facing a new issue here.

I have configured Clientless SSL VPN for access to ASA 5540 internal network.

Still I am unable to take ssh to my core switch( I do get logs on debug ip ssh, as posted below):

Hi,

Are you able to ssh from any other ssh clients to  your  core switch fine besides when you webvpn?  if so   I assume you are using ssh plug-in to ssh into  your core switch from when in WebVPN ,  have you checked the version of ssh plug-in you are using in the firewall to ensure there us no bugs listed for ssh ?

Hi Jorge,

I am able to ssh from other clients into core. The issue arises only when I login through SSL VPN. My network otherwise is in production. The only change Ive made is creating the SSL VPN as I have to hand it over to maintenance team. But due to this ssh issue, I am unable to proceed with the handover.

This seems to be a client server ssh issue.

The client(which is my ASA inside IP-i checked the logs for the connection teardown) is having no encryption algorithm as can be seen from above output.

This is thwarting the login i suppose.

Hi Arun ,

Thanks for update,   if you look at the ssh debug  "no matching cipher found: client none server aes128-cbc,3des-cbc,aes192-cbc,aes256-cbc "

On the SSH clinet side there is  no matching encryption algorythm presented  to the server , whereas the server supports aes128,3des etc.. I suspect it could be your ssh client version  plugin, this is why  we should  check the ssh-plug  version in in your firewall .

Just to be sure  I understand,  you SSL  WEBVPN in  , then you use the ssh://   from your WEBVPN  portal? as shown in attachment ?  if so try using an updated version of ssh plug-in  to rule out issues with your current  ssh client in firewall.

Regards

I think that is it. Let me try and update the plugin then.

Thanks Jorge.

On a side note, could you just help us out with the VPN issue being faced by Paul Carter. I think I might be missing something.
