Trying to connect to M-3050 CLI using PuTTY SSH. Using ip of 192.168.100.100 (what i've read as the default). Getting a black screen from PuTTY connection. Console works fine. Firewalls are turned off. Any ideas? Also if you could please include where you are finding this information. I've looked and have found basically no detail on connecting the appliance thru SSH. Thanks in advance.
Never heard of that default IP address for M-series NSP.
The IP address of the management port is set during the initial configuration of the sensor.
Anyways, if you could connect via console to the device, you could execute the command "show" to see the sensor's IP address.
Use this then for SSH connection. If you don't see any IP address, then I guess you have to re-do the initial config.
After resetting the sensor to factory default, you would be required to re-do the initial configuration.
In here you have to set your mgmt port network settings.
