    I am running multiple pix 501 firewall and use putty via ssh to access
    The problem I am having is that after a month or so I loss the
    ablility to acccess the box via ssh. I then have to go onsite and
    zeroize the key and re create it and then it works for awhile again.

    How do I get the ssh to stay permanent?

    Am I missing something?

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    Did you do a "ca save all"?

    Not at first.

    I have since done a "ca save all" and that has not changed anything.

    When you generate the RSA key, it will not be saved after a reload. ca
    save all will save it to flash. So, if the key was not saved and the pix
    reloaded, you will need to regenerate it and then save it.
