Enable the SSH service for access to Vyatta NOS

How to enable the SSH service in Vyatta NOS to allow SSH access from a remote SSH client.

The SSH service of the Internet gateway should allow users to access SSH from the office LAN but not from the Internet. Here we use an SSH client to enable access to the Vyatta NOS SSH service. Later, we configure a firewall to prevent access from the Internet.

Note: The steps to enable access through Telnet or the Web GUI are similar to the procedure for SSH. Use the set service telnet or set service https command, respectively.
  1. Use the set service ssh command to enable the SSH service.
    Note: By default, Vyatta NOS will use the more secure SSH version 2 rather than version 1.
    user@system# set service ssh
  2. Commit your change.
