Cisco 3560x Access denied Using keyboard-interactive authentication.

 

(Solved) Cisco 3560x Access denied Using keyboard-interactive authentication.

 

Hi folks,

 

The issue with copied / pasted configs from for example a Cisco 3560G switch to a Cisco 3560X 10GBps switch is that commands are propably not recognized.

To overcome the following error:.

Cisco Using Keyboard Interactive Authentication Access Denied

 

Use the Cisco Network Assistent, because on initial Setup of the Device via the console cable, you've propably set a username and password allready.

Log in via the username and password as you initially have setup. Strange thing here, is that it actually works, but not with Putty / WinSCP.

Go to: Configure > Device Properties > Username and Passwords

Select the device and click OK

login via the username / password (no need to change settings in putty in ssh/auth).
