Redhat 8 ssh problems


Hi all,

Minor problem,

I have a redhat 8 box at home, and i've been using putty on win2k to remotely connect to my linux box.
Untill recently, it's been fine. This morning, i ran putty, and up popped the login prompt, but right after pressing
return after the user name, it throws me straight out. As putty gives no error info, i used a linux box to ssh in instead
and all i get is connection refused by host..

Whats wrong? as far as i know i've changed nothing, only ran the redhat update, but that usually has no effect.
I've allways been able to use ssh, as soon as the machine was loaded with rh8 it worked, so ive no idea about
what to look for or at. Any help appreciated !!!!

If nothing's changed and the box is still running and providing other services then I'd say it smells like your sshd died.

naah my ssh did not die, if im local (ie at home on second machine) it works fine and dandy.

I snooped into hosts.allow and hosts.deny, nothing in there at all, and i also looked into passwd, my local machine names are listed, but my works machine (one that fails) is not...

Would this be the problem??? And if so how do i add a machine to the passwd file??? im sure it's not just as simple as creating a user called "machinename".

Problem solved. ended up just restarting sshd

I would still dearly like to know why it was locking out
remote machines tho, and not my local one's ????
