    My company decided to switch to macs and so far these things are great. But I'd like to be able to migrate everything I did on my PC to this macbook pro. I'm currently having issues connecting to my Cisco switches using the builtin terminal. Command is

    ssh switch.work.com - l username

    I'm immediately prompted for a password which is what I'm expecting, but it won't accept my credentials. I know they're correct because I try the same ones on my putty windows machine.

    I also tried
    ssh - l username switch.work.com and get the same results. Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you

    Don't put a space between - and l. Try like this:
    Code:
    ssh -l username switch.work.com
