A perl sample illustrating how to configure ssh access to a BIG-IP.

perl .\SSHAccess.pl bigip user pass¶

  • Query SSH Access settings.

perl .\SSHAccess.pl bigip user pass STATE_ENABLED¶

  • Enable SSH Access for all IP addresses

perl .\SSHAccess.pl bigip user pass STATE_ENABLED "10.10.10.10,20.20.20.20"¶

  • Enable SSH Access for ip addresses 10.10.10.10 and 20.20.20.20

Code :

#!/usr/bin/perl

#use SOAP::Lite + trace => qw(method debug);
use SOAP::Lite;

{
  die ("Usage: SystemState.pl host port uid pwd\n");
}

#----------------------------------------------------------------------------

  -> proxy("https://$sHost/iControl/iControlPortal.cgi");

    'Basic ' . MIME::Base64::encode("$sUID:$sPWD", '')-->
