Ruckus Management

New Contributor II

New to the Ruckus Game.

Trying to get management working.  I would like to SSH to the device without using mgmt port.  Here is what I have, Cisco Router, single cable to Ruckus switch.  Router and switch are communicating, I get dhcp from the router but can't ping.

sh run
Current configuration:
ver 08.0.70dT231
stack unit 1
module 1 icx7650-48zp-port-management-module
module 3 icx7650-100g-2port-200g-module
vlan 1 name DEFAULT-VLAN by port
spanning-tree 802-1w
default-gateway 1
vlan 10 name DATA by port
tagged ethe 1/1/1
vlan 20 name VOICE by port
tagged ethe 1/1/1
untagged ethe 1/1/48
vlan 888 by port

Since you have management vlan defined under the vlan, you will only be able to telnet/ssh within that vlan. If you come in on a different vlan it will be denied. Your other option is to just configure a normal routing interface (VE) and then you can manage it from inbound dataports. If you have not flipped on ssh, you will need to do that on this older code:

conf t

crypto key gen (tab for options if you want something specific)

Thank you for the reply.  I did read about VE interfaces.  My gear does not have that option?  Old OS?

Hi Team 

Please check if your image is a router or a switch image . 

If router image then when you run "Show version" you will see " SPR " and if switch you will see " SPS"

The initial "SP" may vary based on models but "R" and "S" will help you understand if the firmware is "router " or "switch " firmware 

ve commands are not supported in switch firmware "S"

Also please refer firmware related release notes to check on any changes with commands for the firmware used in the switch. Thanks
