SSH was working on my router till we lost power one day. Restored the config, but SSH wont enable itself again. I have regenerated the keys but when I do "sho ip ssh", it still says disabled. Any ideas?

50TP-Router#sho ip ssh
SSH Disabled - version 1.99
%Please create RSA keys (of atleast 768 bits size) to enable SSH v2.
Authentication timeout: 120 secs; Authentication retries: 3

Do you have a domain name?

ip domain name something.com

then generate your keys

Yes, I did all the steps all over again. hostname, domain name, etc.. It will generate the keys for me, but never enables SSH.

Can you check your router configuration to make sure there is no "ip ssh rsa keypair-name xxx" command?

That was it! There was an old repair key with the old host name. Removed it and regenerated the keys. Works fine, thanks for the help :)
