SSH to older Nas4Free


Post by cpcnw »

I need to be able to automate SSH unprompted from the most recent build into a much older build.

I have imported the authorized key but get this when trying to login to the old box;

Code: Select all

Unable to negotiate with port 22: no matching host key type found. Their offer: ssh-dss
I know I can add "HostKeyAlgorithms=+ssh-dss" to the new box ssh config and probably need a script to do this at startup.

Is there any way to do this via GUI that remains permanent in embedded?

This answer ... er-ssh-dss might be of use. It says to use "your" ~/.ssh/config . I couldn't find such file for my user and I don't like using root for automation, instead I put my rsa files like keys, .pub , etc in a permanent location and reference them. So I think you could try creating that config file in a permanent location.
