    Posted 16 days ago
    Hello All,
     I am trying to change the ssh port on a 6100 series switch. I can't seem to find the commands to do this in the guide. I would greatly appreciate the cli commands.

    Hi,

    You can't change the SSH server's port on 6100. If you are looking for a way to secure the SSH server on the switch consider using ACL applied on the control-plane. More details you can find in the Aruba CX Hardening Guide - https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/AOS-CX/10.07/PDF/AOS-CX_10-07_hardening.pdf

    P.S. Changing SSH port can be considered as a part of "security by obscurity" approach and IMHO it never worked well 🙂 If I need to find an actual SSH port on a device, it will take me a couple of keystrokes to call nmap scanner and a couple of minutes to find the actual SSH port  😉 Just my 2 cents.

    i dont think you can change SSH port on CX switches in a consistent way.
