Can't ssh remote to Fedora 14 machine


Hi

I have looked for clues in the sshd.conf etc. But I can't really find anything that give me a hint of why fedora 14 keeps blocking my access.

I get all the way into the ssh interface.


login as: xxxxx
xxxxx@xx.xx.85.216's password:
Access denied
xxxxx@xx.xx.85.216's password:
Access denied
xxxxx@xx.xx.85.216's password:

So it's not a firewall problem and the port forwarding is working fine. I am using putty to access the machine remote.

Anyone have any ideas of what I need to set in ssh or sshd.conf. I am expecting to login with password not with keys.

Thanks

well you should be looking for hints in the log file, that's what it's for... tail /var/log/secure

Aside from the firewall and the sshd daemon needing configuring... I dont know why it wouldnt be working. But some verbosity should help you out:

Code:
ssh -vvvvvvvvvv root@123.123.123.123

sz is right.
Without remote try adding a test user and password and then access it. It could be something very small causing this. Fedora has some serious security settings that could inhibit what you are trying to do.
