Vyatta Network OS Documentation

Learn how to install, configure and operate the Vyatta NOS, which helps drive our virtual networking & physical platforms portfolio.

Enabling SSH access

The SSH service of the gateway should allow users to access SSH from the office LAN but not from the Internet. In this step, access to the SSH service on the system is enabled by using an SSH client. Preventing access from the Internet is done later by using the firewall of Vyatta NOS.

Note that setting up Telnet or web GUI access is similar to setting up access to SSH by using the set service telnet or set service https command, respectively.

Enable SSH access

To allow SSH access, you enable the SSH service on the system. By default, the system is set to use the more-secure SSH version 2.
