To support SSH clients that use different types of key pairs, generate both DSA and RSA key pairs on the
SSH server.
Configuration guidelines
SSH supports locally generated DSA and RSA key pairs with default names rather than with
specified names. For more information about the commands that are used to generate keys, see
Security Command Reference.
The public-key local create rsa command generates a server key pair and a host key pair for RSA.
SSH1 uses the public key in the server key pair of the SSH server to encrypt the session key before
transmitting the session key. Because SSH2 uses the DH algorithm to separately generate the
session key on the SSH server and the client, no session key transmission is required and thus the
server key pair is not used in SSH2.
The public-key local create dsa command generates only a host key pair. SSH1 does not support
the DSA algorithm.
The key modulus length must be less than 2048 bits when you use the public-key local create dsa
command to generate the DSA key pair on the SSH server.
Configuration procedure
To generate local DSA or RSA key pairs on the SSH server:
Step
1.
Enter system view.
2.
Generate local DSA or RSA
key pairs.

Enabling the SSH server function

The SSH server function on the device allows clients to communicate with the device through SSH.
The device that acts as an SSH server does not support SFTP or SCP connection initiated by an SSH1
client.
To enable the SSH server function:
Step
1.
Enter system view.
2.
Enable the SSH server
function.
Enabling the SFTP server function
This SFTP server function enables clients to log in to the device through SFTP.
To enable the SFTP server function:
Command
system-view
public-key local create { dsa | rsa }
Command
system-view
ssh server enable
128
Remarks
N/A
By default, no key pairs exist.
Support for the dsa keyword
depends on your device model.
Remarks
N/A
By default, the SSH server function
is disabled.
