Hi, I hope someone can help, I'm getting an SSH error when doing a gtm_add from a blank GTM, wanted to verify that FW rules allowed ssh, is there a way I can telnet on port 22 to another GTM using the tmsh?
Not telnet, but have you considered using traceroute w/TCP? The syntax would be:
run util traceroute -T -p 22
That worked, thank you so much. FW port seem to be opened...
Have you btw seen where you run the gtm_add and get stuck at the "enter root password if prompted" ?
alm@nygtm01(Active)(/Common)(tmos)# run gtm gtm_add

This worked too, thanks!
