Can Network switches be added as a device and managed?

Is it possible to add switches and manage it in ezeelogin?

Most switches that support standard SSH 2 protocol would work if you add them with "Keep Server Password" option.

You would just need to copy the default Ezeelogin public keys found under Servers->Global Key or /usr/local/etc/ezlogin/id_key.pub to the authorized keys file on the switches and then add the switch device into ezeelogin with the keep server password’ option enabled.

More explicit support for switches and other network devices are on our todo list.

 

 

 

1. You would now need to identify the ’First Prompt’ , to find it, login as the ssh user and you will get the prompts

  In this case the ’first prompt’ would be ’11>’. 

you can include space character as well so totally there a 3 characters as required.


2. Then you would need to ’enable’ mode and enter the ’prompt’ field after you switch 

  In this case the ’Root Prompt’ would be 11>’ 

you can include space character as well so totally there a 3 characters as required.


3. once you fill in the ’first prompt’ and ’root prompt’ then you need to take a look at the ’Password Prompt’ variable.

Password : 

The ’Password Prompt’ would be ’password :

 

4. Then select enable from privilege escalation and save 



One you have filled in all the three variables, automatic enable would work.
