Hey, I've got to laugh here. You installed the packages on your system and you expect me to know what is msec?
It sounds like it is some sort of security package.
Why have you not done an
rpm -qil msec
and also looked in
and then told me what it was? :+)
It is not a package which comes with RedHat, I just checked the RedHat 9 RPM database, and after just checking Debian, it is not a package which comes with Debian.
If you had done a Google search you would have found
MandrakeSecure: Introduction to msec
... system. What Does msec Do? However, one source of confusion with msec
is what exactly it does. ... messages. Customizing msec With Overrides. ...
Now the thing is, you
have actually found the cause of the problem, which is good going. All you have to do now is to
consult the documentation and correctly configure msec to allow sshd to run and accept incoming connections from your other host.
Looks like your problems will soon all be over ...
