SSH Problem Incoming

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Fred Atkinson, Apr 30, 2011.

  1. I have telnet blocked for management access on my Cisco 871
    SOHO router.

    From inside my network, I use Putty.exe to access the user
    interface. When I access it, I first get a prompt for my user name
    and then my password (I am using login local).

    From outside my network, if you use Putty.exe to access the
    user interface, you immediately get a password prompt (no prompt for a
    user ID).

    I can't seem to figure out why this is happening.

    Does anyone have any educated guesses?

  2. Thanks for the response but no.

    I checked that. I have 'login local' on both the vty and the
    con port.
