Unhappy SSH Upgrade problems




I just upgraded openssh on a server of mine to the latest version. I encountered a few problems along the way finding fixes for most of them.

The problem I have now is not being able to log in. I even tried it from the server itself. I keep getting errors about my password being wrong. I think this must have something to do with pam, is there a webpage or something that shows how to setup pam support for openssh?

Hi. Are you sure your server is using pam? Did you compile sshd corectly? Did you do --with-pam or I would rather say MD5 ?
You didn't specify what OS are you instalizing it on. Go to openssh.org there is a perfect howto about it.

Okay I recompiled with pam support enabled. I can logon now from the server itself but not from a seperate client.
My hosts.allow file has
sshd: my.client.ip

but the ssh client freezes on my workstation when trying to connect and I am not seeing any messages in the logs related to this problem.

Is it possible my client is too old to work with the latest version?

hello,
In hosts.allow you should have ip of a host that you are trying to connect from. Try to put hosts.allow ALL:ALL and in deny don't put anything and then make a test. Plus client can stay as it is. I hope you compiled a 3.5p1 ver. of sshd. It should work .
Jakub.

Ok. Like always I overlooked the simple things. My firewall was configured to block my client.

So, I changed that and now everything works. Thanks for all the help jakublgz!!
