3.7 Configuring the SSH/Telnet Service for Login to the XSCF
This section describes how to configure the SSH service and Telnet service. To use the XSCF shell terminal and the control domain console of the specified physical partition, use SSH or Telnet. Enable/Disable SSH and Telnet, set the SSH host key, and set the auto timeout time for logged-in users. Also, register the SSH user public key with the XSCF.
SSH and Telnet can be concurrently enabled. However, communications that use the Telnet service cannot be considered as being secure. We recommend disabling the Telnet service when an SSH service is enabled.
SSH Client
This system can use the SSH function with the following client software:
  1. Oracle Solaris Secure Shell
  2. OpenSSH
  3. PuTTY
  4. UTF-8 TeraTerm Pro with TTSSH2
For the software terms of use, see the respective software manuals.
Port Number
The SSH port number is 22, and the Telnet port number is 23.
User Public Key
To use an SSH user key through an XSCF-LAN connection, create a user secret key and user public key for a registered XSCF user account on the client PC, and register the user public key with the XSCF.
To display, register, or delete an SSH user public key after specifying a user name, the useradm user privilege is required.
Note - For UTF-8 TeraTerm Pro with TTSSH2 4.66 or later, 2048-bit DSA is not supported for user public keys.
Console
The SPARC M12/M10 systems can be used with a writable (RW) or reference only (RO) control domain console for a physical partition. You can use one RW console per physical partition. Use the console command to use the control domain console. For details on the console, see "Chapter 2  Logging In/Out of the XSCF."
