ssh connection reset by peer


hi all, I have been running a webserver of mine for about 2 weeks now and yesterday out of nowhere it started giving me this error when I try to log in with ssh. I did a little looking and found some things like password file corrupt and such but when I rebooted it worked fine. but now today it has done it again. I do not want to be rebooting my webserver as I do not have a monitor or keyboard hooked up to it.

when I reboot it this time what should I be looking for as a cause of this? I have tried logging in from different computers and using different names but it is all the same.

thankyou

I would start by checking the log files by doing something like this:

cat /var/log/messages | grep ssh

If you don't find anything there edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and change the log level to debug, restart sshd, try to login again, then check the log file again to see if you can find anything.

Try changing the passwd for drew. As root do:

passwd drew

OK, I went ahead and changed the password and time will tell I guess. Thanks for the help.
