ok, now that i'm diving deeper into ssh i have now come across something that is screwing me.
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
has anyone seen this before, and if so, how do i fix it?
i started up portsentry on a box so that i could learn about my firewall and it's listening abilities. now it won't let me back in. i shut portsentry down, still nothing. i put my workstation in the .ignore, as stated by the file, still nothing. i've looked into the sshd_config and i don't have any clues.
i have a kvm so i can get into the box to change things around, yet this is really starting to get me.
edit: if i go into another machine i can log into the firewall without any problems. could the problem be that i did a nmap on the firewall from my workstation? i can go from the firewall to the workstation without any problems also.
