I have downloaded OpenSSH and am trying to get it to work. The sshd is started in .xinitrc.
After logging in, the 'ps' command does list it:
(0)root at myhost:~ => ps waux | grep ssh
root 18615 0.0 0.8 1424 536 ? S Jan19 0:01 sshd -f /usr/local/etc/sshd_config -h /usr/local/etc/ssh_host_key
After that, I am issuing the ssh-agent command. I have tried 2 options.
$ ssh-agent bash
$ ssh-agent login
The instance of ssh-agent seem to be valid only for that xterm. Once the xterm is
terminated, the ssh-agent is terminated too.
The keys (identity file) have been generated. Then I add the keys using ssh-add.
(0)root at myhost:~ => ssh-add
Need passphrase for /root/.ssh/identity
Enter passphrase for root at myhost:
Identity added: /root/.ssh/identity (root at myhost)
When I try to login from NT, using TeraTermPro+TTSSH or Putty, the system says invalid
password. I have tried the user's Linux password and the SSH key passphrase.
The system log has the following entry.
Jan 20 07:36:23 myhost sshd: Failed password for ROOT from 10.3.23.21 port 2483
Jan 20 07:36:27 myhost sshd: Received disconnect:
What am I doing wrong here? How do I establish the SSH session between the Linux
and NT boxen?
Thank you in advance for any help.
