Secure Shell 2

Secure Shell 2 (SSH2) is a feature of the ExtremeXOS software that allows you to encrypt session data between a network administrator using SSH2 client software and the switch or to send encrypted data from the switch to an SSH2 client on a remote system.

Configuration, image, public key, and policy files can be transferred to the switch using the Secure Copy Protocol 2 (SCP2).

The ExtremeXOS SSH2 switch application works with the following clients: Putty, SSH2 (version 2.x or later) from SSH Communication Security, and OpenSSH (version 2.5 or later).
