Environment

All NCM Versions

Cause 

A third-party component WodSSH is not able to establish connection to device using SSH2.

Resolution

  1. Establish a remote access to the device via external IP address or VPN.
  2. Open a support ticket to WodSSH vendor to investigate the issue. 
  3. A workaround is to download configs via SSHv1.
