Issue/Introduction

We configured MobaXterm and it's working with most devices. However, there's some CISCO switches (Cisco Catalyst 2960 release 12.2(25r)SEE6 ) that work with Mindterm but give "Authentication failed" with Moba and Putty. We have enabled all the available ciphers, not just the default ones.

 

Environment

Release : 4.0.x and 3.4.x

Component :

Cause

This ciphers are dismissed : aes128-cbc,3des-cbc,aes192-cbc,aes256-cbc  as are regarded weak and have been taken out of the list for the SSH Proxy in newer PAM releases.

Resolution

If the customer absolutely needs this, then it should be opened a case in support.

PAM Support can assist in getting them enabled again
