Enabling Secure Shell Access on the Management Interface


As a System Console Administrator, you can enable secure shell access (SSH) to the Management Interface of your system for you and other System Console Administrator accounts. This option is disabled by default.

When SSH is enabled on your Vidyo server, it runs on port 2222.

Secure shell access (SSH) is only permitted on the Management interface. If you enable SSH, be sure to setup whitelist IP filters to ensure access is only granted to specific machines.

To create System Console accounts:

  1. Log in to the System Console.

    For more information, see Logging in to the System Console of Your Server and Changing the Default Password.

    Press the Enter key after each prompt.

  2. Enter m for more options.

  3. Enter A for Advanced Options.

  4. Enter 5 to enable SSH.

  5. Enter y to change the current setting.
