Prerequisite for Using SSH

Before using the switch as an SSH server, you must install a publicly or
commercially available SSH client application on the computer(s) you use for
management access to the switch. If you want client public-key authentication
(page 6-2), then the client program must have the capability to generate or
import keys.

Public Key Formats

Any client application you use for client public-key authentication with the
switch must have the capability export public keys. The switch can accept
keys in the PEM-Encoded ASCII Format or in the Non-Encoded ASCII format.
