SSH2 Client

SSH2 client allows you to connect from a RUCKUS ICX device to an SSH2 server, including another RUCKUS ICX device that is configured as an SSH2 server. You can start an outbound SSH2 client session while you are connected to the device by any connection method (SSH2, Telnet, console). RUCKUS ICX devices support one outbound SSH2 client session at a time.

The supported SSH2 client features are as follows:

  • Encryption algorithms, in the order of preference:
    • aes256-ctr
    • aes192-ctr
    • aes128-ctr
    • aes256-cbc
    • aes192-cbc
    • aes128-cbc
    • 3des-cbc
  • SSH2 client session authentication algorithms:
    • Password authentication
    • Public Key authentication
  • Message Authentication Code (MAC) algorithm: hmac-sha1
  • Key exchange algorithm: diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 or diffie-hellman-group14-sha1
  • The client session can be established through either in-band or out-of-band management ports.
  • The client session can be established through IPv4 or IPv6 protocol access.
  • The client session can be established to a server listening on a non-default SSH port.
Note: The ICX SSH client does not support compression algorithms.
