( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Remember, I'm not talking about servers, I'm trying to SCP files from switches, so they don't have as sophisticated a key-handling scheme. They want to have a single DSA key pair. Using the same key pair on every switch creates a new security risk, plus it is sort of a pain to set up. Using different keys for each switch would be a major pain to set up.

But it goes beyond that. Since SSH is already enabled on each switch, the OS won't let you run the keygen command on the switch. I.e. it won't create or load the keys until SSH is disabled. We use SSH to get to the switches. Catch-22.

Hence, I need to use password-based authentication (for now).

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
