Initiates an SSH2 client session to a remote SSH2 server.
|cipher||Specifies the name of the
Possible values are:
|mac||Specifies the name of the
Message Authentication Code.
Possible values are:
|portnum||Specifies the TCP port number to be used for communicating with the SSH2 client. The default is port 22.|
|on||Specifies that the data is to be compressed.|
|off||Specifies that compression is not to be used. This is the default.|
|username||Specifies a login name for the remote host, as an alternate to the username@host parameter. Can be omitted if it is the same as the username on the switch.|
|host||Specifies the name of the remote host.|
|ipaddress||Specifies the IP address of the remote host.|
|remote command||Specifies a command to be passed to the remote system for execution. The switch does not support remote commands. The option is only valid if the remote system is a system, such as a UNIX workstation, that accepts remote commands.|
|vr_name||Specifies the virtual router.
The default virtual router is VR-Mgmt.
Note: User-created VRs are supported only on the platforms listed for this feature in the ExtremeXOS 32.2 Feature License Requirements document.
SSH2 does not need to be enabled on the switch in order to use this command.
Typically, this command is used to establish a secure session to a remote switch. You are prompted for your password. Once you have logged in successfully, all ExtremeXOS command you enter are executed on the remote switch. When you terminate the remote session, commands will then resume being executed on the original switch.
This section provides information about the characters supported by the switch for host names and remote IP addresses.
When naming the host, creating a user name, or configuring the IP address, remember the requirements listed above.
This section provides information about the characters supported by the switch for remote filenames.
When naming a remote file, remember the requirements listed above.
The following example establishes an SSH2 session on switch engineering1:
# ssh2 admin@engineering1
The following example establishes an SSH2 session with the switch named X460-G2 over TCP port 2050 with compression enabled:
# ssh2 compression on port 2050 admin@X460-G2
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.2.
Changes to cipher, as well as the addition of mac, were first available in ExtremeXOS 15.7.1.
Ciphers and MACs that are unsupported in OpenSSH 8.1p1 were removed in ExtremeXOS 30.7.
This command is available on all platforms with the SSH2 module installed.
