Secure Shell (SSH) server can be configured for remote login to the router, giving a secure connection from standard SSH clients.

Independent SSH servers can be started in any vrf.

Users can configure the address and port on which SSH listens on.

Here is an example of configuration that will start a SSH server in the main vrf:

vrouter running config# vrf main
vrouter running vrf main# ssh-server
vrouter running ssh-server# commit
Configuration applied.

To display the SSH server state:

vrouter running config# show state vrf main ssh-server
   port 22
   enabled true

The same configuration can be made using this NETCONF XML configuration:

vrouter running config# show config xml absolute vrf main ssh-server
<config xmlns="urn:6wind:vrouter">
    <ssh-server xmlns="urn:6wind:vrouter/ssh-server">
