Remote management of M4300-8X8F through SSH connection

Remote management of M4300-8X8F through SSH connection

I’m hoping someone can help me solve something that has bene bothering me for a while. I have 2 x M4300-8X8F switches that I’d like to access using SSH2 protocol with Putty. I’ve been using HP ProCurve switches for years and am accustomed to being able to connect using the IP address of a given switch to gain access to CLI without having to use the console port. Can someone please tell me how I can establish a remote session to the M4300 series switch using SSH2 protocol. There are many times I don’t have physical access to a switch making it impossible to use the console port. Thanks in advance for your help.

Welcome to the Community!

 

By default the SSH Configuration is disabled on the switch, you may want to go through pages 527 on this manual.

 

Hope this helps!
