configure ssh username on Cisco ASA

Below are instructions on how to have SSH access into a cisco asa

when you first login to a Cisco ASA you will need to create remote access into the box.  to do this we will do the following

login to config t mode and set a regular password and enable password

to do this you will need to use two commands (assuming that secret is the actual password):

password secret

enable password secret

 crypto key generate rsa modulus 2048

ssh outside
ssh inside

the above command allows all IPs to ssh inside and outside.  Adjust this accordingly

by doing this method you will only be able to ssh with a user named pix

to user usernames to log into the ASA do the following

username test password secret

 aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL
