Hello how do I enable SSH access in 2960x switch

Thanks

RE: How do I enable SSH access in 2960x

You need to generate a RSA key and then enable SSH access to the VTY lines (if not already enabled). You also need some form of AAA access enabled as SSH requires there to be a user logging in.

CODE

hostname router
ip domain name something.local        <required to generate RSA key>
crypto key generate rsa general-keys modulus 2048
username admin password cisco
line vty 0 4
 transport input telnet ssh
 login local
