Access Firewall and Switch Devices through SSH

To make SSH sessions on some Firewall and Switch devices on senhasegura, it’s necessary to disable some parameters, this happens because the way the devices were constructed, here are the step-by-step:

  1. Access Settings → System Parameters → Segregated Parameters.
  • On the tab Remote session:

    • Deactivate “Enable file transfer for download?”
    • Deactivate “Enable file transfer for upload?”
    • Deactivate “Enable triggers for file transfer?”
  • On tab Security:

These steps are necessary because the resources mentioned use a sub-ssh session, and some firewalls and network devices like switches don’t support this technology, resulting in failures for the remote sessions. In this case, it is mandatory to disable the parameters using a Segregated Parameter so that they work perfectly.
