sshd won't start anymore - hostname?
Could somebody point me in the right direction regarding this:
I've been running a small Slack 9 file server for some time. I had SSH up and running on it OK.
Then while logged remotely from a windoze machine using Putty I su-ed and issued 'reboot'.
Then I tried to log on again from Win/Putty without luck but that had happened before (I think) so I connected the monitor to the server box, logged in locally and checked if sshd was running. It was not.
If I issue: /etc/rc.d/rc.sshd start - nothing happens. The daemon doesn't start.
One thing I did which I think could affect the sshd was changing HOSTNAME.
ssh localhost - does nothing
/etc/rc.d/rc.sshd start - does nothing
ps aux - doesn't list /usr/sbin/sshd
What next, please?
