- SSH without a "Username or Password"?

terminal server vendor has supplied me with a modified version of the
SSHD exe that allows for mapping of the serial ports directly to IP
addresses. This allows for a direct connection to the serial ports by
use of only an IP address. I would like to use SSH to make this
direct connection but would like to NOT have to enter either a
username or password. I have configured the sshd_config file on the
terminal server to allow inbound ssh connections without passwords,
but have found no way to use a null username. The serial consoles on
the devices I will be communicating with ,via these terminal server
ports, will use Tacacs or Raduis for user authentication. Therefore, I
am simply trying to use ssh to setup a more secure encypted
communications path. Anyone know how to get sshd to allow a
connection without either a username or passord???
Thanks Very Much in Advance
Re: SSH without a "Username or Password"?
That's going to depend very much on the modifications your vendor has
made for the direct-to-serial functionality. Have you asked them?

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
