Solaris - Cisco router connectivity
Posted on 2006-11-16
My doubt is: Is it possible to connent a Solaris machine (with SSH enabled) to a Cisco router through SSH connection?
I don't know how to configure SSH Server/Client in Cisco router. But incase if its enabled, is it possible to connect to them from a Solaris machine ?
Here in the given below example, I'm able to telnet to a cisco router (IP: 22.214.171.124) but not SSH. Is there any different syntax for SSH to network devices? I assume that in Cisco router SSH access must be always available along with Telnet as it is more secured.
[root@just root]# ps -ef|grep sshd
root 1733 1 0 Nov10 ? 00:00:01 /usr/sbin/sshd <-- SSH is running
root 5168 5099 0 01:07 pts/0 00:00:00 grep sshd
[root@just root]# ssh 126.96.36.199 <-- SSH to Cisco router, connection refused
ssh: connect to host 188.8.131.52 port 22: Connection refused
[root@just root]# telnet 184.108.40.206 <-- Telnet works
Connected to 220.127.116.11 (18.104.22.168).
Escape character is '^]'.

[root@just root]# ssh 172.16.2.19 <-- SSH to other solaris machine works.
The authenticity of host '172.16.2.19 (172.16.2.19)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is 76:f6:d4:0b:ea:34:05:e5:65:76:8d:7a:78:a6:83:d2.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes

I would appreciate if you could respond me at the earliest since it is very urgent for me.
