Netsight Console (Java) at ubuntu client is not possible to open ssh to switch

  • 1.  Netsight Console (Java) at ubuntu client is not possible to open ssh to switch

    Posted 03-09-2017 09:17
    My customer uses Netsight Java Clients at Ubuntu linux. Currently he cannot use the basic functionality of netsight which is accessing to a switch via ssh if he right click on a switch in netsight console.

    If he right click in a switch and choose "ssh" it happens nothing!
    It seems to me that the ssh link is hard coded to a (windows) putty client which is not available on ubuntu client.

    Is that correct and can be solved ?!
    Or is there a configuration option possible.

    Regards

    Hello Matthias,

    you might be able to leverage the "Third Party Menu" to specify an SSH application. See How can you create a 3rd party menu option for a device in Console? and How to change the telnet/ssh port that NetSight Console uses.

    On Ubuntu you would probably need to start a terminal that executes an SSH client, e.g. "xterm -e ssh user@host" or "gnome-terminal -x ssh user@host".
