Version
9.2.0

Enable or disable Secure Shell (SSH) Version 2 from the Address Manager user interface. With SSH enabled, you can use an SSH client to access the Address Manager Administration Console via the physical IPv4 address of the Address Manager server.

Note: SSH upgraded to include AES encryption

Address Manager and DNS/DHCP Server have been updated to include only AES ciphers, in accordance with FIPS 140-2 certification requirements, to ensure that communications using SSH are secure. As a result, customers using older SSH clients may need to upgrade to an SSH Client that supports AES encryption.

To configure SSH on the Address Manager server:

  1. Select the Administration tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Administration page.
  2. Under General, click Service Configuration.
  3. From the Service Type drop-down menu, select Secure Shell (SSH).
  4. Under General Settings, set the following parameters:
    • Enable SSH Service—select this check box to enable SSH service; deselect this check box to disable SSH service.
  5. Click Update.
