Hi All,
Is it possible to give source while doing ssh from Extreme switch to some external node.

Like we give source using from in  traceroute or ping.

I am afraid that is not an option.

here is the command syntax for SSH and there is not an option to mention a source IP.

ssh2 {cipher cipher} {mac mac} {port portnum} {compression [on | off]} {user
username} {username} [host | ipaddress] {remote command } {vr vr_name}

*** Please Note:
Ping and traceroute delay figures measured here are unreliable, due to the
high CPU load experienced when complicated show commands are running.
