Did I just lock my self out????


Here's the prob:

I wanted to update my Damn Small Linux open ssh, so I found out what the url for the new .deb (its debian based) package is, downloaded it with the command

wget -c http://http.us.debian.org/debian/poo...1p1-5_i386.deb

then I did

sudo dpkg -i openssh-server_5.1p1-5_i386.deb

then came the sh*t storm:

Selecting previously deselected package openssh-server.
dpkg: considering removing ssh in favour of openssh-server ...
dpkg: yes, will remove ssh in favour of openssh-server.
(Reading database ... 10576 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking openssh-server (from openssh-server_5.1p1-5_i386.deb) ...
Stopping OpenBSD Secure Shell server: sshdConnection to myserver.url.com closed by remote host.
Connection to myserver.url.com closed

Now I can't connect to my system :S

I was doing everything through SSH from a remote location (different city), so how do I get in my system now? Do I need to make a call where the system is, get them to log in the system, and run SSH manualy? Did my sshd_config file get reprogramed in the process of this update? How deep am I here?

The /etc/ssh/sshd_config file was probably replaced with the one from the package. Extract the file from the package and read through it. What changes does it make in the way you authenticate?


Also try to connect using telnet and see if you have a prompt. If not, the ssh daemon might not be running.
This is a quick way of finding out if a port is open & service is running.
Example:
Code:
 telnet hpmedia 22
Trying 192.168.1.104...
Connected to hpmedia.
Escape character is '^]'.
SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.0

I got a connection refused when I tried to connect to the port that I had SSH running.

telnet: connect to address XXX.XXX.XX.XX: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host


Any other ideas?
