Re: router access through ssh
You'll have to look up the router's manual pages and documentation. Not that
many routers support SSH: the ability to do the session key management takes
some resources that the designers may not want to allocate to the management
tools, and some serious support time to build, although it's gotten more
But think carefully about how you do this, as you would for any secure
service. Access to SSH should be limited to trusted hosts, and should
probably use a private key that is secured and distinct from any other key
in use, to avoid people stealing one key or getting it from an active
ssh-agent session and getting access to your router as well as to other
systems. And I'd avoid SSH access from anywhere outside your own local,
physical network: routers are too important to your security to leave
configurable from elsewhere if you don't *have* to.
