Is there anyway can we access EX switch over the network without username and password i.e once we connect to EX switch over
ssh/telnet etc, EX switch should allow the connection without uername/password?
Thanks and have a good weekend!!
Greetings, If I'm getting your question right the answer is no, nevertheless, If you don't type the username, ssh will use the username you are currently logged in as but the password is still needed.
sarahr202@client$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
is analogous to:
sarahr202@client$ ssh myserver.com
The only way you don't need a password is when the switch is a brand new ( factory default) and you log in via console with the root user.
Have you seen this with other vendors? 😮
have a good weekend too 🙂Lil Dexx JNCIE-ENT#863

Thanks , you got my question correctly.
It is not clear form Your post if You actually WANT this to happen, or You are trying to prevent this from happening, or are You doing a forensic investigation for unauthorised access attempt(s).
If You actually want this to happen, then public key authentication is the way to go
Junos does support creating public key pair authentication for automation servers to access devices without password prompt.
This kb outlines the process.
Naturally keep you keys well protected and change them whenever those with access leave the company.
